The 1994 Il Carbonaione exhibits a dense, dark purple color, followed by a sweet nose of pain grille, vanillin, and copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit. Rich, full-bodied, pure, and long in the mouth, with outstanding harmony among its structural components (alcohol, acidity and tannin), this is a beautifully made, classic Tuscan Sangiovese. Although approachable because of the sweet, rich fruit, this wine needs another 1-3 years of cellaring. It will drink well for 15 years.

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.

Intense, deep ruby color. It has an ample and varied bouquet, with the supremacy of notes of little wood red fruits (blackberry, bilberry and black currant). Full bodied, warm, rich and strongly charactered taste with the presence of noble tannins. It's soft, but at the same time full of vitality, with long, persistent flavors.

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 won't want to miss. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.

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.

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.

93 Points "A soft and fruity mouthful that amazes with its fresh, crushed berry character. Full-bodied, oozing with raspberry and blackberry flavors, its tannins are big, soft and velvety. Long aftertaste." Wine Spectator , Dec 15, 1998, James Suickling
