 Wine Advocate 87 points (Jun 2012)
The flagship 2007 Ghiaie della Furba is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 20% Merlot. Black cherries, licorice, tobacco, mocha and chocolate are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass, but ultimately the Ghiaie della Furba comes across as overdone. There is plenty of richness, but less in the way of real complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

Wine maker notes
Was created in 1979 when Ugo and Vittorio Contini Bonacossi decided to create a wine in Carmignano with a Bordeaux blend of grape varieties . The first vineyard, made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, was situated on the pebbly, alluvial soil of the Furba stream, after which the wine is named. In 1992 the S. Alessandro vineyard (entirely Cabernet Sauvignon) became productive and the wine’s blend of grape varieties was modified. In 1998 we added Syrah grapes. Today the wine is produced from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Syrah (10%): Ghiaie della Furba is matured for a year in barriques and laid down for a further 12 months in bottles.
