    Winemaker's Notes:

    Il Carbonaione is a full-bodied, rich wine with an exuberant personality and great aging potential. It has abundant aromas of red and dark berry fruits - tart cherries, blackberries, currants, and plums with notes of spice. On the palate, the wine is lush and full-bodied with flavors of berry fruits buoyed by focused tannins unfolding over a pleasant, lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Carbonaione (Sangiovese) is a stunner. Deep, rich and utterly impeccable, the 2010 boasts breathtaking richness, energy and power. The flavors remain incredibly primary in a wine that will require years to develop. Graphite, crushed rocks, blue/black fruit, plums and smoke emerge over time. As phenomenal as the 2010 is today, it really should be cellared for at least a few years. This is a drop dead gorgeous wine from Vittorio and Jurij Fiore.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    A knockout nose with loads of blueberries, raspberries and vanilla cream aromas that follow through to a full body, with wonderfully polished tannins and a 50-second finish. Beautiful to taste now, but will be much better in two or three years. Pure Sangiovese.

    James Suckling

    A plush, textured red, featuring layers of pure cherry, raspberry, leather, briar and tobacco flavors. Concentrated and juicy, getting support from the dusty tannins on the finish. Needs air, so decant now, or cellar.

    Wine Spectator

    Vittorio Fiore produces this 100 percent sangiovese from vines planted in the decade after the first World War, a terraced, west-facing 12.5-acre block on his estate in the hills between Greve and Panzano. It’s a full, rich red that still feels airy for all its texture, layers of silk and satin that provide juicy flavor satisfaction without weight. Purely Tuscan.
