IL Borghetto is situated in Montefiridolfi in the Northern part of Chianti Classico. The estate is owned by Antonio Cavalini, and winemaker Tim Fanning is getting quite a cult following now in Italy and the USA. The last 2 years his BILACCIO chianti classico has received the highest rating from the L’espresso Guide in Italy, a very influential wine guide. (Unfortunately we will not be able to get hold of the Billaccio as current vintage is sold out.) I guess I would describes Tim’s winemaking as very burgundian influence with great texture and intense fruit. He ferments all with whole berries and even uses some percentage whole bunch. The wines have long maceration times of up to 40 days.
