Winemaker Notes

Il Carbonaione is a full-bodied, rich wine with an exuberant personality and great aging potential. It has abundant aromas of red and dark berry fruits - tart cherries, blackberries, currants, and plums with notes of spice. On the palate, the wine is lush and full-bodied with flavors of berry fruits buoyed by focused tannins unfolding over a pleasant, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
A knockout nose with loads of blueberries, raspberries and vanilla cream aromas that follow through to a full body, with wonderfully polished tannins and a 50-second finish. Beautiful to taste now, but will be much better in two or three years. Pure Sangiovese.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A plush, textured red, featuring layers of pure cherry, raspberry, leather, briar and tobacco flavors. Concentrated and juicy, getting support from the dusty tannins on the finish. Needs air, so decant now, or cellar.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Vittorio Fiore produces this 100 percent sangiovese from vines planted in the decade after the first World War, a terraced, west-facing 12.5-acre block on his estate in the hills between Greve and Panzano. It’s a full, rich red that still feels airy for all its texture, layers of silk and satin that provide juicy flavor satisfaction without weight. Purely Tuscan.

Image of winery
The vineyards of Podere Poggio Scalette take their name from the landscape, which is characterized by drystone walls that support the terraces on which the vineyards and olive groves are planted. From a distance the impression is of a series of stairs climbing the slopes of Greve. 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.
