Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Similar to the 2010 vintage, the ’12 Flaccianello offers undisputed elegance. Rich without heaviness, round without flabbiness, sappy without jamminess, this wine wafts with pure Sangiovese fruit that rests on a bed of cigar wrapper, dark chocolate, baking spices, warm saddle leather, and minerals. This wine caresses the palate with a silky mouth-feel, yet its vibrancy and focus keep its opulence in check, making it one of the finest--and most approachable--Flaccianello bottlings to date. 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 at least eighteen months. This ’12 Flaccianello is a stellar bottling, enjoyable upon release or years down the road.
