...Sweet red cherry, plum, kirsch, spice and rose petal nuances gradually emerge from the glass...Over the years, Il Carbonaione has built a tremendous track record of aging very well. Next to Chianti Classico's other 100% Sangioveses, Carbonaione is made in a sweeter, jammier style with more mid-palate opulence... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Very woody. Dry. Good with food but not crazy about it on its own.

Such an intense inviting nose and sexy opulent palate. I’ve been on a roll lately with excellent Sangiovese based wines (this is 100%), but this ranks high across the board, and still not close to fully mature. Herbs and spices, leather, ripe rich red fruits, silky tannins, buoyant acidity. Nothing NOT to like here, especially when paired with a pork osso bucco.

Whoa!!! Seriously good Sangiovese. Full-bodied and fruit forward now, but with breadth/depth to mature into something very special. The nose alone will light you up...

17+. 2012. Outperforms most good Brunellios Ina not-great year. Benefited from decanting. Lovely fruit. Must go back tomy2001. This was restaurant, well-priced at CHF80 (otherwise, their excellent list of Brunellos started around 175).
