Winemaking

The grapes come from various vineyards of the Radda region of Chianti. After traditional mash fermentation in stainless steel and concrete tanks, maceration occurs between 40 and 60 days. Subsequent maturing for 18 months in cement tanks.

Our tasting note

Bright, ruby red colour. Somewhat soft on the palate with an elegant, clear acidity. In addition, it also impresses with incredibly harmonious depth, great concentration and a wonderful drinkability. Classic Sangiovese with plenty of character.

Tenuta di Carleone

Tenuta di Carleone was founded by the Austrian entrepreneur Karl Egger in 2012. The oenologist is none other than the Sangiovese wizard Sean O'Callaghan, winemaker at Riecine for many years. Il Guercio or one-eyed rascal, as the Italian Scot is known by his friends, is a truly passionate quality fanatic. The vessels that Sean uses for ageing his wines include uncoated concrete eggs. The fine pores in the concrete promote natural micro-oxidation, which ultimately has a positive effect on the development of the colour and taste of the wine.
