Savoury and concentrated with a hint of spice and vanilla on the finish. Very stylish.  Full, rich with good depth and concentration of fruit with a hint of spice, liquorice and vanilla. An elegant wine with a lingering finish.

Producer Note
Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet and farms 424 hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany's most prestigious appellations. The original aim of the producers - to produce modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation (a radical departure when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional wine-making style) - has been admirably fulfilled. Pioneers of internationalism of Tuscany, the Dogajolo is a great example of this ethos of action. Carpineto has been named IWSC Italian Wine Producer Of The Year in 2003 and was the first ever Italian winery ever to win the IWSC International Winemaker Of The Year Trophy in 1994. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet's daughter, Caterina, has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree. Vineyard
The grapes are from the Gaville Estate near Florence and the Chianciano Estate near Siena. The vines are grown in clay and limestone soils. Winemaking
Each plot was fermented separately in steel tanks at temperatures of between 25 to 29°C, with skin contact lasting 10 to15 days. After the malolactic fermentation was complete, the various crus were blended and aged in new oak barriques for ten months. The wine benefits from a minimum of six months of bottle ageing, prior to release. Tasting Note
Full, rich with good depth and concentration of fruit with a hint of spice, liquorice and vanilla. An elegant wine with a lingering finish.
