Since 1981, the careful method of production has allowed the grapes to retain their natural characteristics, giving us a wine of great purity. Particular care is taken during harvesting, vinification, and finally the maturation in wood so as to achieve this unique wine.

Wine AdvocateMade from 100% Sangiovese and aged 12 months in French oak, the 1999 Flaccianello is immensely impressive. Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by scents of high class French oak intermixed with black cherry liqueur, minerals, spice box, tobacco, and blackberries. Concentrated yet elegant, this sweet, pure, exceptionally long wine can be drunk now, or cellared for 10-12 years.

Wine SpectatorFascinating aromas of berries, fresh mushrooms and beef. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a lovely finish. Gorgeous. Best after 2004. 4,500 cases made.
