PODERE POGGIO SCALETTE 'Il Carbonaione' 2014

The 2014 'Il Carbonaione' is a lovely display Sangiovese di Lamole from Vittorio and Jurij Fiore, which was sourced from vines more than 90-years-old planted to the stony, sandy silty-loam soils of the Carbonaione vineyard. The wine itself reveals a gorgeous dark color and opens to inviting aromas of blackberries, cherries and tart berries, which are woven together with tobacco, raw coffee bean, leather and hints of fresh violets, all coming through beautifully. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied and well balanced with lively acidity yielding a slightly austere finish. This spent 15 months in new/one year French (90%) and American (10%) barrels followed by an additional 9 months in bottle before release. (Best 2018-2025) - April, 2017 (JD)
