Outer quote mark This gorgeous Sangiovese delivers notes of blueberry, raspberry and flowers on a full-bodied palate, with supervelvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2012. *Highly Recommended* (JS) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark The 2007 Il Carbonaione (Sangiovese) bursts from the glass with layers of dark blackberries, espresso, flowers and spices. Sumptuous and flamboyantly ripe, the Carbonaione boasts superb purity and a multi-dimensional, textured finish. Carboniaone has a tendency to acquire Bordeax-like qualities as it ages. This will be another fascinating wine to follow over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. Vittorio and Jurij Fiore make some of the most compelling wines in Tuscany from their pristine vineyards in the hills above Greve. Their 100% Sangiovese Il Carbonaione is one of the great undiscovered treasures in the world of wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Wine Enthusiast
Outer quote mark Made by celebrated winemaker Vittorio Fiore, this gorgeous Sangiovese-based wine shows the lavish intensity and creamy consistency of Tuscany's world famous reds. Ripe fruit, cherry and exotic spice would pair with steak, lamb or oven-roasted pasta. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

Jancis Robinson
Outer quote mark Excellent weather with just the right amount of rain and fully ripe phenolics. Dark healthy crimson. Very ripe fruit and a certain element of balsam. A super-rich version of the tanginess of Sangiovese with impressive ripeness. Lots of fruit almost obliterates the considerable charge of ripe tannins. 17.5/20 points. Drink to 2030. (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
