Tenuta Carleone di Castiglioni was first mentioned in the 1078 when it was founded by monks (thank God for monks) and is amed for the village of Castiglioni meaning ‘small castle’. It’s a verdant paradise of wooded hills, rivers, fertile plains, olive groves and, of course, vines. Winemaker Sean crafts Sangiovese with an appreciation of the practices of the past and an eye (one eye in Sean's case, hence Il Guercio meaning one-eyed rascal) on the ever changing environment and how that should influenced vineyard management. As such, he employs organic and biodynamic practices with no additions at any stage.
An Italian pink putting it's best food forward. Rosato of pure fragrance, pleasantly light, fresh and all things pretty. Tuscan wine that will make you smile on those rare Autumn afternoons when the sun decides to make a brief, but welcome appearance. Dry Rosato rarely gets better than this!
