I love this wine.
 
I went back and looked, and I still have 6 bottles of the first vintage I ever bought (pic attached). According to Cellartracker, I paid wholesale $43.26 per bottle for that case of wine nearly 15 years ago .
 
So imagine my excitement when we were able to cut an end of year deal for the 2019 Il Carbonaione, allowing us to bring them to you for $44.99 per bottle. Obviously I’m in for a case 😁

What's the big deal?

The highly-regarded Carbonaione vineyard is small, about 13 acres of stony, sandy silty loam at about 1500 feet elevation up above the little town of Greve in Chianti, facing west-southwest. It was planted back in 1928, so there are vines of more than 90 years of age, and that on its own is enough. But this is one of the few sites in Chianti planted solely to Sangiovese di Lamole, a clone that may be (researchers are still trying to sort it out) one of the older clones of the grape, and which falls under the Sangiovese Grosso heading (also known as Brunello di Montalcino). The vineyard plot “Il Carbonaione” is so named because the owners found evidence indicating a charcoal pit (in Italian ‘carbone’) located there.
 
The winemaking is straightforward, with a nod towards Chianti’s traditions – both stainless steel tanks and cement vats are used. The same with the barrels: no barriques but larger 350L barrels. The nod towards modernism lies in the use of 90% French and 10% American oak, rather than some Italian chestnut or such. Though the family’s ownership of the vineyard and this bottling date only back to 1992, the wine has already proven quite capable of long aging. You can drink it now with virtually anything rich and flavorful, as powerful as it is, but something silkier and more seductive awaits in a decade or more (if you can wait that long :)

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We'll have it up on the machine at all eight stores all weekend long!
