Previously called Meticcio this is the new vintage of the same blend. This is not a traditional blend in the Chianti area -  Merlot & Cab Franc with a long maceration (4 months) for something bold & spicy. 

 

Sean O’Callaghan, originally from Somerset, South West England, moved to Tuscany in 1991 after studying winemaking in Germany. He was head winemaker at the renowned estate Riecine for 25 years, leaving in 2016 following the estate coming under new ownership. Though not a native, Sean has an unsurpassed knowledge and understanding of the local terroir and microclimates, and a unique affinity with the Sangiovese grape. He is known to his friends as ‘Il Guercio’, meaning ‘one- eyed bandit’, referring to the fact that he was born blind in his right eye, which he credits with giving him a unique perspective on winemaking, and on life in general.
