    Winemaker's Notes:

    Flaccianello combines all the wild and old-world characteristics of the Sangiovese grape with the modern vinification techniques of what may be the top winemaking house in Tuscany today. The vineyards from which this wine takes its name continues to produce a Sangiovese of superior quality year on year. Made with 100% Sangiovese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The pureness of fruit is so intense here. It’s also so clean and beautiful. The wine shows fabulous aromas of flowers, blueberries, and raspberries. It’s full-bodied, with chocolate, licorice, and plums. The texture is very velvety. This is a wine in near perfect proportions.

    James Suckling

    The raspberry, cherry, floral and spice aromas and flavors in this classy red show harmony even at this early stage. Fresh and focused, with a vibrant finish. Sweet fruit, mineral and spice notes resonate on the aftertaste. Sangiovese. Best from 2014 through 2025.
