Ruby red clear color; unusual nose of freshly cut red apples, raspberries and plums and some baking spices from new oak; dry, medium acids, fine tannins and rich mineral-like notes with some baked desserts and coffee flavors on the palate, and a watery but satisfying finish. Unsusual but I like it. — 2 days ago
This is exactly my kind of thing: heavy, perfumey, dark-fruity. Amma-fuckin'-rone.
Bear says: velvety and structured practically faultless. Very yum. — 5 days ago
White peach, grapefruit, and orange blossom with hints of lime zest and ginger on the nose. Ripe peaches, lemon, and tangerine with hints of dry toast and almond lingering on the finish. Reminiscent of Puilly Fume sauv blancs; very nice value. Goes great with spicy food — 16 days ago
Shadowy ruby. Delicious. Fragrant with raisin, red fruit, blackberry, goji berry, herbal spices, blood orange, a bit of chocolate, leather and earth. Nice acidity and brightness on the palate, with just a pleasant balancing touch of sweetness. Feels like it’s in the prime of its evolution, with some fruit remaining but developing complexity. Could definitely go another 5 or more years. I think it would be really great with duck. — 7 days ago
A blend of 40% Corvinone, 30% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, remained indigenous grapes derived from 18-acre vineyard. Ruby with with aromas of dried fruits with floral and smoky spice notes. On the palate plum and sweet cherry flavors, savory, with citrus, tobacco & cacao. Soft tannins, chewy on long finish ending with a juicy fruit and oak character. — 17 days ago
The 2016 Flaccianello della Pieve is a truly special, moving wine. There's not much more to say. The 2016 was epic when I tasted it last year. It is every bit as memorable today. Beautifully layered, the 2016 possesses remarkable finesse and power. All of the natural intensity of Panzano's Conca d'Oro comes through in a wine that dazzles from start to finish. As always, Flaccianello showcases the darker side of Sangiovese. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 9 days ago
90% Merlot, 10% Cab Sauvignon. Tar, earth, tannins, acidity. Would have liked a bit more fruit and a bit more bouquet. — 11 hours ago
