Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Full-bodied, complex, and seductive, the ’99 Flaccianello is wondrous. Layers of red and blue fruits, warm spices, tobacco leaf, melted chocolate, balsamic herbs, and crushed river rocks dance with tertiary notes of black tea, umami and tar in this stunning wine. Despite its almost two decades of age, this wine shows acidic verve and mineral-powered energy, and it blankets the palate with silky, fine-grained tannins as it builds to a lingering, almost infinite crescendo. Earthy, dense and multi-faceted, this ’99 Flaccianello shows the greatness of mature Sangiovese. Crafted from organically grown Sangiovese, this wine ferments with only natural yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about three weeks before aging in oak barrels for a year before bottling.
