Tasting Notes:
tasted: October 27, 2015 , from a member
4.5 stars "Opened in the my office around 11am. Big, bold but beautifully sweet and elegant. Nose of violets, evolved fruit, wood, spice and herbs - very Tuscan. Big but so soft and silky on the palate. Beautifully balanced and while it will only get better with time, does not come off as tight or restrained. Fantastic"

96 points ""I tasted the 2007 Flaccianello a number of times from barrel and tank before it was bottled a few months ago. The 2007 is a bold, extroverted Flaccianello that sweeps across the palate with sensual layers of candied cherries, violets, spices and minerals. Dark, mentholated notes develop in the glass, adding further dimensions of inner sweetness, weight and complexity to this Tuscan thoroughbred. While so many 2007s are forward and open, Flaccianello remains muscular, taut and in need of significant cellaring. Still, the round, enveloping finish augurs extremely well for the future. Flaccianello is a selection of the estate’s finest Sangiovese and is aged in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032." In the Cellar, May 2010, Antonio Galloni" Best 2017-2032

95 points "A generous Sangiovese, with loads of blackberry, dark cherry and berry on the nose and palate. Full and long. Chewy. The new wood could stand to have a little less barley flavor, but the fruit is fabulous. Takes off on the finish. Best after 2012. 5,000 cases made. –JS" Best 2013-
