• Rosato Toscana IGT 2018

      Rosato Toscana IGT 2018

      Delicate salmon pink. Fresh and discreet raspberry nose with a hint of pomegranate. The taste is clean and precise with fine acidity and subtle hints of red berries and a little crunchy Braeburn apple. In the finish long and smooth - and again with a fine Sangiovese acid reader, as only Sean O'Callaghan can get into the glass. An indispensable companion for happy and carefree days. SUPERIORE.DE

      "It’s fresh and creamy on the palate with a strawberry and salty character. Medium body. Light phenolic texture. Crisp finish. Pure sangiovese." James Suckling

    • "Carleone" Chianti Classico DOCG 2016

      “Carleone” Chianti Classico DOCG 2016

      Very inviting scent of cherries and meadow herbs, with a nutty touch. On the palate medium strong, again wonderfully juicy fruit, cool, mineral style, very finely structured and balanced, with lively Animo, sounds quite long and makes desire on the next glass. Perfect accompaniment to Italian dishes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico is floral, delicate and very nicely lifted. Silky tannins and mid-weight structure give the 2016 its feeling of delicacy and nuance. Bright red berry fruit, spice and floral notes are all laced together in this attractive, gracious Chianti Classico from Tenuta di Carleone." Vinous

    • "Due" Rosso Toscana IGT 2015

      “Due” Rosso Toscana IGT 2015

      Amarena cherries and floral aromas, quite typical for Sangiovese, dominate this very Tuscan cuvée with a French touch. With a little air, dark berry aromas develop, such as blackberries and black currants. Then tenderly spicy herbs, which can also be found on the palate. The juicy fruit dominates in the quite powerful appearance, framed by silky tannin structure, which will refine with some cellar ripeness. Long reverberation with animating fruit-acid game. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dried roses, cedar and cherries on the nose. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Succulent and juicy." James Suckling

    • "Il Guercio" Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      “Il Guercio” Rosso Toscana IGT 2017

      Treat yourself to a large glass or decant the guercio, then a dark berry mix with black cherries and a hint of dark chocolate will be on the menu. On the palate just as juicy fruit, full-bodied with fine silky tannins, elegant and finely structured, fills the palate completely and remains always fruity, almost playful, very animating in the long finish. Potential for a few years in the basement. A wine with character and the masterpiece of the winery. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tenuta di Carleone's 2017 Il Guercio (Sangiovese) is bold, eccentric and full of character. Wild, crazy aromatics, red berry fruit, blood orange, mint and dried flowers are some of the many aromas and flavors that emerge from this undeniably quirky, alluring wine. The combination of a high-altitude site and the use of whole clusters in fermentation results in a wine with tons of intrigue. It is hard to fully capture the Guercio with words; think of a wine that brings together the high-toned aromatics of a Martini clone Pinot, the acidity of Sangiovese and the structure of a traditionally made Barolo."

    About the winemakers
    Tenuta di Carleone
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Tenuta di Carleone

    When "newcomer" If they fall in love with an area, it can happen that they not only remain, but also put more love into their products and pay much more attention to quality than the locals themselves. This can often be observed especially in Tuscany. If there are two more "quality lovers" and run a winery together, you will also get great wines.

    The Austrian businessman Karl Egger and his family fell in love with a wonderful spot in the south of Tuscany near Radda in Chianti and acquired an old estate there. Actually, it is even a hamlet with a chapel, thus a small village, one could say, as this means Castiglioni in Italian. Its history goes back to the year 1078. At that time the monks of the nearby monastery Badia a Coltibuono founded this estate, which has been lovingly restored and reactivated by the Eggers in recent years. About 100 hectares of land are included. Much of it is forest, but about 20 ha of vineyards and about 10 ha of olive groves have been cultivated since 2012.

    Sean O'Callaghan – lovingly by his friends "Il Guercio" what you can freely call "the one-eyed rascal" could translate – is actually English and was born in Sri Lanka, where his family ran tea plantations. Back in England, his father planted wine near Somerset and sent Sean to Germany where he studied viticulture and then – instead of taking over the vineyard in England. – stayed there and, among other things, became cellar master at the Diel winery. On a holiday in Italy he met John Dunkley, the owner of Riecine, a thought leader in Chianti Classico and his oenologist Sergio Manetti (Montevertine – Le Pergole Torte), got the job as a winemaker and stayed just under a quarter of a century.

    Karl Egger offered Sean O'Callaghan gave him the opportunity to build the young winery Tenuta di Carleone, gave him a free hand in winemaking and let him rebuild the cellar. From stainless steel to wooden fermentation stands, oak barrels in various sizes to modern cement tanks as in the most expensive Bordeaux cellars. – Sean can vinify every single plot as he sees fit. The cultivation is organic-biological, partly biodynamic, fermented only with own yeasts and spontaneous. Long skin contact and slow fermentation, partly with whole grapes, bring the difference.

    Default: „Sangiovese with a twist. Sean's twist“.

    The vineyards around Radda, all the way to Gaiole, are among the best in Chianti Classico. This wooded, mountainous landscape is somewhat cooler and always crossed by a fresh breeze. Some vineyards reach up to 700 m above sea level. During the day the onshore winds blow from the sea, at night the wind freshens up from the mountains and cools down the vines. This interplay produces a juicy, pronounced fruit, and the meagre, calcareous soils let the vines have deep roots and bring elegance and mineral notes to the wines. The wines of Sean O'Callaghan are often referred to as Burgundian. In any case, they are always elegant and delicate. SUPERIORE.DE
