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

The "Tenuta di Carleone" vineyard was founded by the Austrian entrepreneur Karl Egger and his family in 2012. The 100 hectare estate comprises wooded hills, small, idyllic rivers and fertile plains with ca. 20 hectares planted with grapes. No less than Sean O'Callaghan, winemaker at Riecine for many years, is the oenologist. Il Guercio (one-eyed rascal) as the Italian Scot is known by his friends is a truly passionate quality fanatic. He works exclusively in accordance with organic, biodynamic principles. Cultured yeasts and fining agents are taboo in his cellar.
