Description

Wine:
"The Borgo Sugame Chianti Classico epitomizes classic, traditional, terroir driven production of artisan quality Chianti Classico. The Sugame Chianti Classic is deeply colored with a powerful bouquet expressing deeply concentrated, berry fruit supported by herbal notes, rosemary and a hint of sage. The wine is rich and structured with intensely concentrated dark berry fruit supported by tannins that flow into a long, lingering finish."

"The Sugame wines are not fermented or aged in new, French oak barrels and are not manipulated in any way or "made" in the cellar. Total production 800 cases." - Importer

Producer:
"Perched on a hilltop over 500 meters above sea level, the stunningly beautiful, perfectly, south west exposed, single vineyard of the Antico Borgo di Sugame overlooks the beautiful Greve Valley and its expansive vineyards, olive groves, blue skies and awe inspiring sunsets. Borgo di Sugame dates back to about 1200 AD, as an inhabited location. The meaning of the name Sugame is unknown but it is shared with the adjacent pass over the hills between the Val di Greve and the upper Val d'Arno."

"The perfectly manicured Sugame vineyard totals nearly five hectares and is comprised, mainly of sandy-lime soil with a small percentage of clay. There are also 2 hectares of olive trees and an additional 28 hectares of woodland. Vines in the Sugame vineyard average 28 years of age with some newer plantings now 7 years old. Below the main vineyard are very old vines that were planted and are cultivated in the old, traditional style. All wines produced at Sugame are certified organic and follow traditional viticulture and vinification practices of the Chianti Classico. All Chiantis produced at Borgo Sugame are 100% Sangiovese." - Importer
