Piaggia Carmignano Il Sasso 2006

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The 2006 Piaggia, Carmignano, Il Sasso shows a ruby red color in the glass with aromas of black cherry, lavender and herbs, lead pencil and just the right amount of toasty oak. On the palate, I found juicy blackberry with a citrus twinge, followed by cedar on a well-structured frame with balanced acidity. Citrus and sour cherry show on the medium long finish.

What a surprise since I picked this up after reading a brief article on Carmignano and thought to taste one. Amazing nose that reads like a basket of red fruit. First it's raspberry, then wild berries and then cherry cough drops followed up by cedar and saddle leather. The palate reveals sour cherries, creme fraiche and clove. Medium body with wonderfully brisk acidity and a nice long red berry finish

Smoky oak and leather on the nose. This offering is remarkably accessible and beautifully balanced with a lingering openness rare for such a young vintage. The opulent taste of dark fruit, smoke, leather and licorice dominate this wonderfully balanced 70% Sangiovese, 20 Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot blend. Indeed, the low yields which comprise this stylish cuvee serve to vault this wine into elite company. Great with cheeses. 92.
