This is the wine conceived and desired by Vittorio Fiore after long
years of study, thought, and working experience and it is the result
of an exceptional pairing and synergy: Sangiovese and the Ruffoli
vineyards in Greve in Chianti. The results of this synergy - the
grapes harvested in the Carbonaione vineyard – are worked with
passion and dedication by Vittorio Fiore and his son Jurij in order
to obtain a wine of great power and elegance, one capable of
expressing in all of its richness the terroir in which it is born.
"The 2009 Il Carbonaione has elegance to burn. Polished, silky tannins frame layers of fruit as this harmonious, totally finessed wine blossoms in the glass. The 2009 is simply glorious from the very first taste. A kick of Sangiovese acidity gives the wine its lift and vibrancy on the finish. This is a great showing.

After the death of the previous owner, Podere Poggio Scalette remained abandoned for years until Vittorio Fiore (one of Italy's most famed winemakers) and his wife Adriana discovered the property in 1991.

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.
