Tenuta di Carleone

Sean O'Callaghan is the man behind these incredible expressions of Sangiovese. Sean unusually eschews all use of wood in favour of concrete tanks for both fermenting and maturing these wines. This choice gives the wines vibrancy and a unique personality amongst the wines of Chianti.

Sean is a minimal interventionist and because of this these wines have a very pure expression of Sangiovese. The Chianti Classico, made with Radda fruit, is an absolute gem, while Il Guercio comes from a high altitude vineyard - 700m above Gaiole in Chianti, and undergoes an extended maceration of 4 months in concrete, paradoxically producing a wonderfully elegant wine.
