The Estate

The Austrian entrepeneur Karl Egger and his family have been visitors to region of Tuscany for decades. They fell in love with small corner, just outside the medieval town of Radda in Chianti between the citis of Siena and Florence.⁣

Consequently, they founded the winery “Tenuta Carleone di Castiglioni”, located in the heart of the Chianti region. It was named after the small village of “Castiglioni” (small castle) which was first mentioned in the year 1078 when the monks of “Badia al Coltibuono” founded it. There is also a typical tuscan farmhouse called “Pian Vecchio” (old plain) on this land.⁣

The whole property, which covers an area of approximately 100 hectars, comprises of wooded hills, small rivers and fertile plains. Nestled in between there are around 20 ha of mainly Sangiovese vineyards and more than 10 hectars of olive trees, some of them older than 60 years. The Egger Family has renovated the beautiful “Castiglioni” hamlet with its old chapel and the nearby farmhouse of “Pian Vecchio”.

The Wine

Grape typology
San Giovese

Refinement and elegance are its key words, a Sangiovese that manages to amaze by moving away from the traditional winemaking of the area that plays more on the body and the important use of wood. A style that, thanks to Sean and other producers in the area, is being abandoned, increasingly moving towards wines that play on elegance and ease of drinking.
