Powerful masculine Sangiovese. 15 degrees alcohol. A monumental effort.

Very smooth and rounded tannins and fruits. Tasty with juicy cherries and balanced refined finish.

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)

Flavorful with juicy black cherries - nice acidity and tannins to balance out. Not very harsh and great with food.

This Flacc is OTT. Bordeaux gestalt with a nose of Tuscany. Whiffs of thyme and sage, so many secondary aromatics over cedar and old, dry earth. Smooth as silk, brick-edged and tasting of red clay and old cherrywood. Needed only 20 mins in decanter to open wide. Drink up.

Sweet blackcurrant, black cherries and spices and a bit smoky on the nose. Spicy on the palate with acidity and tannins, ripe sweet black cherries and blackcurrant. A bit of smoke at the finish.

I’ve had this wine at least a dozen times but it wasn’t showing optimally tonight. It may be descending down the other side of the hill. Fruit, structure and weight were all less than expected.
