A little fashion in the wine industry

Who new Salvatore Ferregamo is in the wine industry ?

In the heart of Tuscany, there is a little medieval village call Pian di Nova. When I had the opportunity from one of our distributors to taste some wine from the Il Borro winery, I was amazed by the style. If you know Salvatore Ferregamo, the designer, then you need to experience his wine as well. His style in fashion is very refined and classic. We now carry three of his wines.

Il Borro Pian Di Nova IGT 2007

The style of this wine is very new world. It has a base of 75% Syrah and 25% Sangiovese, something that is not very common in Tuscany.

The wine is very approachable immediately as you open the bottle. From the bouquet, you get aromas of cola combined with rhubarb and as it hits your palate, the wine is silky smooth much like the feel of micro suede.

The wine has been so well received; we are already finding it difficult to keep in stock. It is not even listed on our wine list as of yet however, the staff has already sold 2 cases in less than a week.

You can now enjoy Il Borro Pian Di Nova IGT 2007 for $20 glass $60 bottle (or take a bottle home with a 45% discount from its retail pricing).

Also from Il Borro at Mercy are the:

Il Borro Super Tusscan 2007 $90
Il Borro Brunello di Montalcino 2004 $90

Ask me and I'll be more than happy to share this wine experience with you.
