Elisabetta Gnudi owns Borgo Scopeto, along with Altesino, Caparzo and la Doga, and she and winemaker Simone Giunti are responsible for all aspects of the production of Borgo Scopeto wines. The name Scopeto almost certainly comes from the presence in the woods of Erica scoparia, a shrub used to make brooms and besoms. It was with the 1990 vintage that a Chianti Classico
with the Borgo Scopeto label first appeared on the market. Chianti Classico, in the center of Tuscany, is considered the heart of the Chianti wine producing region.
Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico
Borgo Scopeto is an old and well-established estate producer of Chianti Classico, and is a true borgo - a hamlet with its own church, post office, town center and residences.
Made from the Sangiovese grapes of the most important vines of the Borgo, in a locality bearing the name of a small commune abandoned by its inhabitants in the 15th century: Misciano.
Aged in durmast casks of 30 hl and barrels of 500 l.
It has an intense, fine and refined bouquet, with hints of roasted almonds and coffee beens.
To the palate it is dry and structured, although harmonious and soft at the end. “This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Taut and almost racy on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2024.”
