Il Carbonaione is a full-bodied, rich wine with an exuberant personality and great aging potential. It has abundant aromas of red and dark berry fruits - tart cherries, blackberries, currants, and plums with notes of spice. On the palate, the wine is lush and full-bodied with flavors of berry fruits buoyed by focused tannins unfolding over a pleasant, lingering finish. Food Pairing: Pair this wine with grilled lamb chops, sugo all'amatriciana sauces, Bistecca alla Fiorentina, and terrine de foie gras.

Wine SpectatorDark and inky, yet lively, exuding flavors of blackberry, plum and spice, with hints of chocolate and iron. The tannins are tucked into the rich texture. Finishes long and assertive. Needs time. Best from 2017 through 2025. 2,500 cases made.
