The 2008 Flaccianello della Pieve is quite pretty, even if it is a bit buttoned up. It possesses lovely perfume and sweet Pinot-like fruit backed by acidity and structure that are unquestionably those of Sangiovese. Today the 2008 impresses for its energy and verve. It should be a fabulous wine to drink in another few years, once the tannins settle down a bit. This is yet another 2008 that has grown considerably in stature over the last year. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2023. Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

Linear, austere, the '08 is beginning to show some woodsy, underbrush elements, matched to a racy, nervous profile. The tannins are assertive for now and the length fine.—Non-blind Flaccianello vertical (July 2014). Best from 2016 through 2030. 4,000 cases made.

The pureness of fruit is so intense here. It's also so clean and beautiful. The wine shows fabulous aromas of flowers, blueberries, and raspberries. It’s full-bodied, with chocolate, licorice, and plums. The texture is very velvety. This is a wine in near perfect proportions. Best in four or five years.
