Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 Carmignano Montefortini is a bigger, darker wine than the Santa Cristina in Pilli. It reveals superior density and concentration in its mentholated, balsamic profile, along with notes of earthiness, leather, smoke and dark ripe fruit that open in the glass. Ideally the wine needs a few years of cellaring, and should age beautifully. It is a gem. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.

Ambra is a great source for the wines of Carmignano. Proprietor Giuseppe Rigoli's range is truly impressive, from top to bottom. In particular, the Sangiovese-based Carmignanos are standouts."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
