This gorgeous Sangiovese delivers notes of blueberry, raspberry and flowers on a full-bodied palate, with supervelvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2012.

This is one of the best Sangioveses - and Sangiovese doesn't have to come from Montalcino. This wine is huge and really ripe, but doesn't turn flabby, and the usual acidity that comes from the Sangiovese grape is there but doesn't dominate the flavor. The sweet cherry and herb flavors are plush and long. This wine is just starting to come into it's own now, but will last for close to 10 more years.

The 2007 II Carbonaione (Sangiovese) bursts from the glass with layers of dark blackberries, espresso, flowers and spices. Sumptuous and flamboyantly ripe, the Carbonaione boasts superb purity and a multi-dimensional, textured finish. Carbonaione has a tendency to acquire Bordeax-like qualities as it ages. This will be another fascinating wine to follow over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. Vittorio and Jurij Fiore make some of the most compelling wines in Tuscany from their pristine vineyards in the hills above Greve. Their 100% Sangiovese II Carbonaione is one of the great undiscovered treasures in the world of wine.

Amazing dark color for a Sangiovese. Mind-blowing aromas of crushed blackberries, violets and blueberries, with sandalwood undertones. Full-bodied, with silky and focused tannins and beautiful, rich and subtle flavors. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Best ever from this estate, which is owned by legendary winemaker Vittorio Fiore. Sangiovese. Best from 2011 through 2017.

The 2006 Il Carbonaione is a big, dark wine. Imposing at first, it flows from the glass with tons of super-ripe blueberries, grilled herbs, new leather, spices, minerals and flowers. Today the oak is rather prominent, but all the wine needs is time in bottle to come together. The finish is long, pure and refined. Simply put, the 2006 Il Carbonaione is a gem that readers wonrsquo;t want to miss. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2026.

Plum, vanilla and light coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Gorgeous. Well-made and balanced for the vintage. Sangiovese. Best after 2008.

The 1995 Il Carbonaione is an explosive blockbuster of a wine, with extraordinary density and massive flavor concentration. It displays an opaque purple color, fabulous aromatic purity (blackcurrants, new oak, floral scents, and a touch of cedar), extraordinary ripeness, great presence on the palate, but no sense of heaviness or astringency. The wine is formidably deep, powerful, and impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015. Wow!
