2014 Poggio Scalette "Il Carbonaione" Alta Valle della Greve 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1440038 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Il Carbonaione is one of the truly exceptional wines of this challenging season. Lithe and aromatic on the palate, with fabulous energy and overall brightness, it stands out for its superb balance. In many vintages, Il Carbonaione can be a bit bombastic. The 2014, on the other hand, is all finesse. Violet, lavender and cloves add shades of nuance to this bright, beautifully persistent Carbonaione. The 2014 won't be at its best for at least a few years, but its potential is evident. (AG) 95+ Inner quote mark (1/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Such purity in this 2014 with ultra-fine tannins and a depth of ripe fruit. Lots of cherry and raspberry character. Medium body and a fresh finish. Serious for the vintage. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The 2014 Il Carbonaione is more lithe and frisky than the 2015 (also recommended here), with floral and herbal scents that developed during the cooler and wetter vintage. Its juicy, bright cherry flavors and lightly taut tannins make it a ready partner for poultry. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark How enologist Vittorio Fiore gets this Sangiovese to show so much darkness and extraction is a real mystery. The 2014 Il Carbonaione is a delicious and syrupy wine that defies the appearance of this mighty Tuscan grape variety as expressed in the region's major appellations. Instead, this IGT interpretation opens to an inky black color and impenetrable richness. The bouquet delivers black cherry, plum and lots of tobacco. In the mouth, however, you taste that fresh and almost thorny acidity that is so distinctive of Sangiovese. (ML) Inner quote mark (4/2017)
