Tenuta di Carleone Uno Toscana IGT 2019
Uno stands as the flagship for Tenuta di Carleone, and the 2019 release is a wild, unique ride. This Sangiovese is stomped by foot before fermentation, about 20% whole cluster, and the wine ages for about 18 months in a mix of mediums — this is all to say that there’s nothing ordinary about the cuvée Uno. Juicy cherries dance against a backdrop of saddle leather, cigar wrapper, crushed wildflowers, limestone, and herbs. Bright acidity plays off the wine’s thrumming mineral core in this captivating, age-worthy organic Sangiovese.
