The Story

"Borrigiano" means "inhabitants of the Il Borro hamlet", and is the first wine from the estate to be made under the Valdarno di Sopra DOC. Though lesser known, this region carries just as much heritage as the likes of Chianti. Wines have been crafted here for hundreds of years, recognized throughout Italy and protected by royalty. After light protection under the greater Chianti name during the 19th and 20th centuries, Valdarno di Sopra was one of the last regions to gain its own DOC in the 1960's.
