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.

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. Itrsquo;s soft, but at the same time full of vitality, with long, persistent flavors.

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 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 1ndash;3 years of cellaring. It will drink well for 15 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles Purpurrot mit Violettreflexen; sehr offenes, beeriges Bouquet (Zwetschgen, Pflaumen) mit schöner Vanille-, Kaffee- und Röstholzaromatik. Dicht und rund im Gaumen, kompakt die feingliedrigen Tannine. Fruchtbetont mit etwas floralem Nachgeschmack. Wiederum ein Meisterstück aus dem Hause Podere Poggio Scalette, ein aussergewöhnlicher Terroirwein mit Charakter und Format!
