Big 97 point score and a great price

"The Poggio Scalette wines aren't always easy to find, but they are well worth the effort"
   - The Wine Advocate


2010 Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione....$59.99
The 2010 Carbonaione (Sangiovese) is a stunner. Deep, rich and utterly impeccable, the 2010 boasts breathtaking richness, energy and power. The flavors remain incredibly primary in a wine that will require years to develop. Graphite, crushed rocks, blue/black fruit, plums and smoke emerge over time. As phenomenal as the 2010 is today, it really should be cellared for at least a few years. This is a drop dead gorgeous wine from Vittorio and Jurij Fiore
