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. - Antonio Galloni

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. – BS
