2013 Poggio Scalette "Il Carbonaione" Alta Valle della Greve 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1440056 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Il Carbonaione is compelling. That's the good news. The bad news, if you can call it that, is that the 2013 is going to take the better part of the next decade to be at its best. Black cherry, plum, licorice and menthol are all fused together. Today, the 2013 is rich, deep and unctuous, with superb depth and striking balance. Opening a bottle anytime soon, though, is likely to be a mostly academic exercise, as the Carbonaione is so primary, it almost tastes like a barrel sample! 95+ (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Vittorio Fiore's 2013 Il Carbonaione is a softly integrated and well-composed expression of Sangiovese. It shows enormous richness and makes a lasting impression on all the senses, from eyes to nose to palate. The appearance is inky dark, and the bouquet offers a balanced medley of ripe fruit, backing spice, leather, chocolate and tart berry aromas. It needs a few more years to unwind and lose some of its nervous energy. This is a beautiful and unique expression of the grape that will show its best in about five years. 94+ (ML) Inner quote mark (1/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A well of deep, pure blackberry, blueberry and black pepper aromas greets the nose in this red. Silky in texture, this stays spicy as the firm, dense tannins expand on the finish. Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2026. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2016)
