Wine Spectator
Beautiful deep ruby with incredible richness in aroma—blackberry, blueberry and plum—tempered by sweet spice from the oak. This offers mouth filling lushness, intense fruit, terrific balance and harmony, with a long, complex finish.—Non-blind Flaccianello vertical (July 2014). Best from 2017 through 2032.

James Suckling
The blackberry, currant, nutmeg and chocolate aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and lots of savory fruit. Some balsamic and citrus fruit underneath it all. Needs a little time to soften. Pure sangiovese. From organically grown grapes. Better in 2016.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Tuscany
Once internationally ill reputed for producing an ocean of mediocre red wine, Tuscany has regained its place in the sun by focusing on quality rather than quantity. Red wine grapes, particularly Sangiovese, dominate Tuscany’s rolling hills. Sangiovese is the primary grape in the two most famous Tuscan wines: Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. Cabernet Sauvignon also prospers in Tuscany, where it is blended with Sangiovese to produce sensational "Super Tuscans" like Sassicaia and Tignanello. View all our items from Tuscany
Region :
Italy
As the world’s top wine-exporter, Italy is an important wine region both because of the amount and quality of wines produced. Just two grapes—Nebbiolo and Sangiovese—are used to make some of the finest Italian wines, including Barolo, Brunello de Montalcino and Chianti. Still, Italy is home to dozens of wine grape varieties, with important wines being made from Corvina, Barbera, Cortese, Moscato and traditionally French varietals. The major wine regions include Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Campania and others. Most producers follow the government-regulated DOC classification system, with a few notable exceptions including the esteemed “Super Tuscan” producers. View all our items from Italy
