    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is the wine conceived and desired by Vittorio Fiore after long years of study, thought, and working experience and it is the result of an exceptional pairing and synergy: Sangiovese and the Ruffoli vineyards in Greve in Chianti. The results of this synergy - the grapes harvested in the Carbonaione vineyard – are worked with passion and dedication by Vittorio Fiore and his son Jurij in order to obtain a wine of great power and elegance, one capable of expressing in all of its richness the terroir in which it is born.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Il Carbonaione has elegance to burn. Polished, silky tannins frame layers of fruit as this harmonious, totally finessed wine blossoms in the glass. The 2009 is simply glorious from the very first taste. A kick of Sangiovese acidity gives the wine its lift and vibrancy on the finish. This is a great showing. Carbonaione is 100% Sangiovese (Lamole clone) grown on the hillsides of Greve. The wine spent 15 months in 350-liter oak barrels, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2029.

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky in color, this new wave red boasts black currant, blackberry, violet and light spice flavors. Polished and thickly textured, with a pleasantly bitter finish of sweet fruit. Sangiovese. Best from 2014 through 2022.

    Great wine (and a great price!). Dark purple-red-black. Aromas jump from the glass. Full bodied with dark fruit, spice, plum, and tannin. Long finish. Will age well.
