Flaccianello della Pieve is not only the top of the range of the company, but it represents one of the greatest Italian red wines, a selection of the best Sangiovese bunches from the best vineyards of the company, located on the highest part of the basin, where the soil is stony and mineral. The first vintage was produced in 1981, in collaboration with the world-renowned oenologist Franco Bernabei, and from that moment this wine has become a flagship product, requested and awarded all over the world. A microcosm in a glass.

Impenetrable and bright ruby ​​red color, it swirls in the glass with great consistency. The nose has an aromaticity of great expressiveness, inebriating in the hints of wild fruit, cherry, wet earth, iron and graphite, as opposed to spicy hints of cloves and vanilla sweetness. Tasting austerity is typical but elegant, with dense and velvety tannic texture and just mineral returns that lead to a long persistence of sweet spices.
