Podere Il Carnasciale is a little bit of a one-off. This tiny vineyard is located on the eastern side of the Monti dei Chianti in Montevarchi. The vineyard was planted in the early 1980s by Wolf and Bettina Rogosky, using vines which were originally thought to be a natural crossing of Cabernet and Merlot, but now thought to be a unique biotype of Cabernet Franc. Carnasciale is the baby brother to Il Caberlot, the flagship red only made in magnums, whereas Carnasciale is available in regular bottles. The wine is a thing of beauty, with haunting aromatics: red fruits, black fruits, undergrowth, scorched earth and minerals.
