I have praised this wine before, but first now with a night alone with this beauty it was time to break it down to pieces, and what a beautiful performance of the 2017 Tenuta Di Carleone Il Guecio, the fruit shows an impeccable and perfectly ripe quality, fresh as a daisy with a defined red fruit and a floral brush. A salty sea breeze and stony character brings complexity in the deep end. With time in the glass another gear is added as the fruit becomes more defined and layered as the wine reach its climax.
The palate is another chapter, where the fine powdery yet very present tannins acts in tune with the fresh acidity in the background, directing the fruit throughout its long finish. It drinks so well in its enchanting primary stage, but it also have so much to give if you look behind its corners. Give it some air and your fullest attention and you’ll be happily rewarded.
