Intense aromas of blackberries, cassis, cedar and a hint of leather are followed by a full-bodied, rich palate with very refined tannins. Coniale is an excellent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from Tuscany.
Ideal with roasted meats and aged cheeses.
"The 2007 Coniale, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon, is, oddly enough, a more accessible wine than the Merlot. Sweet, silky tannins support a core of expressive red fruit, flowers and spices. This is a pretty, understated wine that makes up for some lack of varietal typicity with its terrific balance and undeniably attractive personality."
The Wine Advocate
"Coniale is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, bearing classy Tuscan characteristics of blackberry, dried Mediterranean brush, rosemary, chocolate, leather and tobacco, with a touch of black olive in the background. The mouthfeel is rich, persistent and soft."

Really great Super Tuscan cab. Very expressive of the terroir at Castellare (you should visit!) -- you can taste the dust and cedars. Could get seriously in debt buying and drinking this.
