VISIT MIAMI'S BEST WINE BAR

2015 FLACCIANELLO DELLA PIEVE, COLLI TOSCANA CENTRALE ITALY

Flaccianello della Pieve is slightly broader in the shoulders and heavier in the gait. There is more meat on these bones, and the vintage presented vintners with near-perfect growing conditions in which one textbook part of the vegetative cycle transitioned directly to the next. The wine is dark, exuberant, and profound, and the quality of the tannins is superb, fine, and firm.
