So if you did not get a chance to purchase the 2016 Piaggia Carmignano Riserva — Italy’s Gambero Rosso’s Best Red Wine of 2019 (2020 edition), here is another opportunity to see what the fuss is all about! We are so happy and pleased, and congratulate our friend Silvia Vannucci’s great success!
“Dedicated to the estate’s paternal figure Mauro Vannucci, the 2016 Carmignano Il Sasso (with 40,000 bottles produced) is a compelling blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. This vintage delivers ample power, yet the wine remains smooth and elegant from a tactile point of view. Sangiovese’s identity emerges with aromas of wild berry, tilled earth and rose hip. The two international grapes serve to shape the firmness and structure of the mouthfeel. This wine is fermented in oak and later aged in medium-toast neutral barrique for 12 months. 2019-2026”. – 93 points, Wine Advocate (ML)
