2005 Il Borghetto, Chianti Classico, Bilaccio (RT 94+) Another pure Sangiovese bottling, aged 16 months in barrel, 4300 bottles produced. Revealing the most evolved character of the tasting, while the hue is like the 2006 and 2007, it shows a much deeper, ripe bouquet of black cherry, Tuscan spice, porcini and forest floor. The house style is again evident with its transparent fruit, lovely acidity and sweet, ripe tannin. This wine outperformed expectations and by all accounts was on fire for this tasting, especially considering a more difficult vintage. Drink now-2025+
