The 2011 Corbaia is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in new French oak. It is once again a very serious wine. The floral expressive aromatics of Sangiovese are backed up by the tannic heft and sheer richness of the Cabernet. This is a big yet sensual wine that will require considerable patience for the tannins to soften despite the early appeal of the vintage elsewhere. The sheer purity and depth of the fruit are breathtaking in this stunning Tuscan red.
