“IL Borghetto is situated in Montefiridolfi in the Northern part of Chianti Classico.

The estate is owned by Antonio Cavalini, and winemaker Tim Manning 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.

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.” (JB)

"Simply put, I can’t recommend these wines highly enough." Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate.
