Carla 6 2015

Carla 6 comes from the desire of Giampaolo and his friend and advisor Stephane Derenouncourt to compete and collide with a vine among the most difficult and unruly: the Sangiovese. Coming exclusively from vineyard No. 6: a unique substrate of gray schist and sand, which gives the wine great minerality and splendid notes of graphite. A pure Sangiovese, vinified and aged individually in French oak tonneaux.

100% Sangiovese

The 2015 vintage was a vintage to remember for favorable weather conditions. A rainy, mild winter saw just a few days with below freezing temperatures along with a spring characterized by sunny and dry days allowed for a regular sprouting. The summer months were hot, especially July, which will be remembered as one of the most torrid months of the last century. August, thanks to three heavy rainfalls and a decrease in temperatures, allowed a regular physiological recovery of ripening. Cool temperatures during September and October allowed for gradual and regular ripening until harvesting.
These climatic conditions, coupled with precise and attentive vineyard management, have made it possible to achieve a good aromatic quality and phenolic maturation of the grapes.

Bottling took place in January 2018

The vintage 2015 was vinified entirely in the new cellar. The wines were then aged in 20%
new French oak barrels, which emphasize the features of our terroir and this vintage. Carla 6 continued its elevage in a concrete tank for 12 months before being bottled in January 2018. The wine stay one year in bottle before release.

The 2015 vintage has produced about 3,000 bottles
