Tenuta di Carleone Il Guercio Chianti 2019

Sean O’Callaghan is your typical Tuscan winemaker, you know the type, blind in one eye and with a strong Somerset accent. He was head winemaker at the brilliant Chianti estate, Riecine, for 25 years, before becoming fully involved with Tenuta di Carleone. He is known to his friends as ‘Il Guercio’, meaning ‘one-eyed bandit’, referring to the fact that he was born blind in his right eye, which he credits with giving him a unique perspective on winemaking, and on life in general.

This eponymous wine is 100% Sangiovese from high altitude sites around Radda. The grapes are picked late to get maximum ripeness from these beautiful high-lying vineyards. Fermented in cement tanks with 20% whole bunches. The long maceration of 4 months gives the wine a wonderful lifted fruit character, which differentiates it from the more classic styles

Tasting Notes

The winery writes "100% Sangiovese from the “Mello” vineyard in Gaiole in Chianti, 700 m above sea level. The grapes are picked late to get maximum ripeness from this beautiful high-lying vineyard. Fermented in cement tanks with 20% whole bunches. The very long maceration of 4 months gives this wine a wonderful fruit character, which differentiates it from the more classic styles."
