Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, October 2021

    The nose is packed with ripe red cherry fruit and earthy notes, followed by smoky french oak, liquorice and some kirsch hints with a bit of coaxing. The palate has a fleshy, almost brooding feel, with fresh, but firm acidity. All of the flavours from the nose are there with more juicy blackcurrant and plum, wrapped in fine grained tannins and a long warm finish, delicious.

    The 2018 Il Carbonaione is one of the most elegant editions of this flagship wine I can remember tasting. Il Carbonaione is usually a rich, bombastic wine, but the 2018 is sleek, gracious and remarkably refined. The fruit was picked a week later than originally planned because of a family emergency. That results in an exotic Carbonaione that is beguiling but not at all heavy. I can't wait to see how it ages.

    Intense aromas of blue fruit, lavender and violets. Some sandalwood, too. Full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and beautiful fruit. Really racy and refined with excellent length. Drinkable now, but a few years of bottle age will make it even more beautiful. Try after 2023.

Podere Poggio Scalette

This tiny family-run property is nestled among the rolling hills of the Ruffoli vineyards in Greve in Chianti, next door neighbour to the renowned and revered Querciabella. The grapes harvested in the Carbonaione vineyard are worked by hand with passion and dedication by Vittorio Fiore and his son Jurij. 100% Sangiovese, Il Carbonaione is their top wine, described by Vinous' Antonio Galloni describes it as “one of the most under the radar wines in Italy” and “a wine with a distinguished track record made all the more notable considering how gracefully the less important vintages have aged.”

Region

Tuscany

Arguably the most celebrated of all Italian regions for its sun, delicious food and rich wines. Chianti lies at the heart of this centrally located, picturesque and expansive area. Tuscany is also home to Chianti's more powerful cousin, Brunello di Montalcino, illustrious Super Tuscanblends and spicy, exuberant whites.
