The vines used for Il Carbonaione, some more than 90 years old, are rare clonal examples of the famous "Sangiovese di Lamole" varietal in the Chianti Classico area. The vineyard plot "Il Carbonaione" is so named because the Fiore family found evidence indicating a charcoal pit (in Italian 'carbone') was located there many years ago

James SucklingA really exotic nose with so much dried herb character, ranging from thyme and sage to Thai basil. Then there's more familiar and equally appealing dark blackcurrants, crushed stones and lavender. Full body with very refined tannins that both coat and caress the palate. A long, chewy finish. Drink in 2022.

Wine SpectatorThis is lush, featuring a light touch of oak spice shading black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors. Firm yet well-integrated, with a lingering, fresh finish. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2022. 2,200 cases made.
