If you crave the very best in Brunello di Montalcino, or collect the finest 100% Sangiovese wines of Chianti Classico, such as Cepparello or Le Pergole Torte, here’s another ruby for your treasure cave that will age 15-20 years effortlessly.  “The 2013 Carla 6 is a pure expression of Sangiovese from a man who has waged a very public war against the Chianti Classico Consorzio and its regulations. This wine chooses to be an IGT Toscana instead. That rebellious spirit shaped the extraordinary personality of this wine. The bouquet reveals beautiful plum and dark cherry with succulent layers of spice and tobacco.” – The Wine Advocate

Wine Advocate

The 2013 Carla 6 is a pure expression of Sangiovese from a man who has waged a very public war against the Chianti Classico Consorzio and its regulations. This wine chooses to be an IGT Toscana instead. That rebellious spirit shaped the extraordinary personality of this wine. The bouquet reveals beautiful plum and dark cherry with succulent layers of spice and tobacco. Carla 6 shows great balance. There is both crispness and structural firmness at the back, and that solid tannic backbone should carry it through the next ten years of bottle aging.
