The 2015 'Il Carbonaione' is a simply sensational showing in this vintage. This Sangiovese di Lamole was sourced from the The Carbonaione vineyard, and spent 14 months in 90% French and 10% American, prior to 6 months bottle age. It begins with wonderful aromatics of cherries and blackberries, which are accompanied by spices, tobacco, florals and hints of leather all taking shape. This medium to full-bodied red is beautifully structured, with a sleek texture and remarkable finesse. It continues to impress as it displays excellent concentration and a lovely balance of fruit and acidity through the vibrant finish. While this is already offering plenty of early appeal, it also possesses the characteristics to thrive in the cellar.
