Il Borro Wines
The Il Borro property dates back to antiquity. It is believed that the Etruscans founded the settlement and built a fort as a lookout point on the Roman road Cassia presumably due to its strategic location. Having visited the property many times, Ferruccio Ferragamo, patriarch of the well-known dynasty, bought the estate from Prince Amedeo, Duke of Savoy-Aosta. Ferruccio’s son, Salvatore Ferragamo, now leads the estate as CEO of Il Borro.
All the wines at Il Borro are made with organically grown grapes and certified by Suolo E Salute. Suolo E Salute is one of the leading monitoring and certification bodies for organic production in Europe. It is the first organic control and certification body in Italy. Suolo E Salute has been one of the founding members of FederBio (Italian Federation of Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture).
About Salvatore Ferragamo
Salvatore Ferragamo is one of Ferruccio Ferragamo’s six children. Prior to assuming responsibility for the family’s agro-leisure business as CEO, Salvatore worked in the corporate world in consulting and finance. In 1993 he joined his father Ferruccio Ferragamo in the long and challenging restoration of the ancient medieval village of Il Borro and in the development of the wine business. His love for the Tuscan countryside and great wines drove him, step by step, to the creation of what Il Borro is today.
In 2012 Il Borro became part of Relais & Châteaux and Salvatore was made Ambassador with the responsibility of representing the excellence and prestige of the organization.
