Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2008 Il Carbonaione shows gorgeous depth, precision and nuance, all of which are quite rare in 2008. Layers of smoke, tar, licorice and beautifully integrated French oak wrap around the deep fruit in its superb, articulated Il Carbonaione. Firm yet elegant tannins support the finish... Il Carbonaione is 100% Sangiovese from an ancient clone native to this part of Chianti Classico called Lamole... As it ages, Il Carbonaione often acquires notes of cedar, spices and sweet herbs that at times recall right-bank Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. (Aug 2011)

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!

The 2008 Il Carbonaione shows gorgeous depth, precision and nuance, all of which are quite rare in 2008. Layers of smoke, tar, licorice and beautifully integrated French oak wrap around the deep fruit in its superb, articulated Il Carbonaione. Firm yet elegant tannins support the finish. I will not be surprised if the 2008 merits a higher score in a few yearsandrsquo; time. Il Carbonaione is 100% Sangiovese from an ancient clone native to this part of Chianti Classico called Lamole. The wine is aged in 350 liter French oak barrels, 50% of which are new. As it ages, Il Carbonaione often acquires notes of cedar, spices and sweet herbs that at times recall right-bank Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2018andndash;2028.

An extracted style, dark and jammy, showing blackberry, plum and oak spice flavors. This is fresh and impressive for its concentration, if a bit rigid on the finish now. Be patient. Sangiovese. Best from 2014 through 2024.

A gorgeous Sangiovese, with blueberry, raspberry and floral notes. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Wine Spectator, James Suckling
