Poggio Scalette

Vittorio Fiore purchased the vineyards of Poggio Scalette in 1991 on the hill of Ruffoli near Greve in Chianti, declaring them to be "heaven on earth for Sangiovese." After tasting their wines, it is hard not to agree with them.

Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione 2014 (6x75cl)

Vinous (95+)

The 2014 Il Carbonaione is one of the truly exceptional wines of this challenging season. Lithe and aromatic on the palate, with fabulous energy and overall brightness, it stands out for its superb balance. In many vintages, Il Carbonaione can be a bit bombastic. The 2014, on the other hand, is all finesse. Violet, lavender and cloves add shades of nuance to this bright, beautifully persistent Carbonaione. The 2014 won't be at its best for at least a few years, but its potential is evident.

Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione 2015 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (99)

A really exotic nose with so much dried herb character, ranging from thyme and sage to Thai basil. Then there’s more familiar and equally appealing dark blackcurrants, crushed stones and lavender. Full body with very refined tannins that both coat and caress the palate. A long, chewy finish. Drink in 2022.

Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione 2016 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (97)

What a crazy nose of pure fruit, featuring pressed violets, lavender, dark plums, cherry compote, orange rind, lemon zest, boysenberries, vanilla, Thai basil and bay leaf. The fruit is so overt and generous, yet presented in an unimaginably sleek way, the firm tannins keeping it compact and silky throughout, while the tangy acidity cuts right through to the long, structured finish. Drink in 2023.
