Winemaking

The philosophy of Tenuta di Carleone is expressed in the perfect way with "UNO". A hand-picked selection of the best Sangiovese grapes from all vineyards. After traditional mash fermentation in cement tanks, maceration occurs between 40 and 60 days. The product is then matured for 18 months in cement and stainless steel tanks, 10% of which in new 500 litre tonneau barrels.

Our tasting note

Vibrant, bright ruby red colour. Open on the nose with notes of raspberry, violets and light spices. On the palate, a perfect symbiosis between silky tannin and inviting fruit. Elegant and yet robust. Wonderful flow with deep finish.

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.
