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.

Pair this wine with grilled lamb chops, sugo all'amatriciana sauces, Bistecca alla Fiorentina, and terrine de foie gras.

Blend: 100% Sangiovese

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
Wonderful aromas of dried orange peel, blueberry and dark chocolate. Full body with firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Always a wonderful sangiovese. Needs at least three years to soften but so beautiful now.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Dark and inky, yet lively, exuding flavors of blackberry, plum and spice, with hints of chocolate and iron. The tannins are tucked into the rich texture. Finishes long and assertive. Needs time. Best from 2017 through 2025.

Poggio Scalette, Italy
Poggio Scalette Winery Video

Poggio Scalette takes its name from the landscape, which is characterized by dry, stone walls supporting 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 its previous owner, Poggio Scalette remained abandoned for years until Vittorio Fiore, one of Italy’s most famed winemakers, discovered the property in 1991 with his wife, Adriana. In 1996, 42 additional acres of land became available, enabling them to expand. It was discovered that the plot of land known as Il Carbonaione was the first area to be replanted after World War I (1914-1918), which means these vines, more than 90 years old, are a rare example of the original clone of the famous Sangiovese di Lamole variety in the Chianti Classico area. The slopes of the Greve Valley are without question some of Italy’s most ideal locations for vineyards and olive groves. The combination of exposure and soil composition contributes to the excellent quality of the wines and the extra virgin olive oils of the area. Named for the river that passes through as it travels from a medieval hilltop town, this area happens to be one of the most important historical centers of the Chianti Classico region. Il Carbonaione, Poggio Scalette’s signature wine, is the culmination of knowledge and experience and therefore an important message of quality. Vittorio Fiore dedicates this wine to Tuscany and to Sangiovese — the region and the variety that have allowed him to fulfill his aspirations to produce superb wine.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
