Palate Profile

Made from 100 percent Sangiovese, Carla 6 was named after Giampaolo’s daughter Carla, with the number six referring to a small plot, less than one hectare, within the vineyard from where the grapes were sourced. The soil is a mixture of clay schist, calcareous marl, siliceous limestone and sandstone. Carla 6 started as an experimental wine in 2011 but has since shown very promising results. The wine is aged in 500-liter French oak barrels for 14 months, followed by another six months in concrete tanks. 

Critic Awards

By appearances you would not guess that this is Sangiovese. The 2016 Carla 6 exudes sheer intensity, darkness and richness. From the fruity flavors of cherry and cassis to floral and earthy notes of rosebud and damp soil, this one's got it all, plus that tertiary note of natural rubber that I love.

A tight and solid red with cherry and blackberry character and hints of black chocolate and wet earth. Some spices and flowers, as well. A solid and intense wine with super structure. Needs three or four years to soften.

Another highlight in this range, the 2016 Carla 6 emerges from a single parcel on the estate measuring under a hectare and planted on gray schist/sand soils. Sweet red cherry, chalk, cedar, spice and dried flowers convey energy and vibrancy.
