Polissena
has a deep ruby-red color. It has an intense bouquet, with notes of underbrush and hints of red fruit. It is dry, with a good body and a pleasant hint of tannins.

Sangiovese grapes for this wine originate from the same vineyard that makes the amphorae-aged Petruna. However, the 2016 Polissena is a more conventional expression of the Tuscan grape, with fermentation in stainless steel and 12 months of barrel age in second and third year barrique. The wine is delicate yet firm, aromatic yet elegant. The bouquet offers wild berry aromas with black fruit, spice and tar. There is a distinct unifying line that connects all the wines made at Il Borro, especially the Sangiovese-based bottles.
