Earthy and slightly rustic Tuscan style with a rich

mouthfeel and a robust 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 vines are grown in the heart of Tuscany in sand, clay and limestone soils.
Winemaking
The two grape varieties were vinified separately, as they ripen at different times.
Towards the end of fermentation they were blended and placed in small wooden
casks where they slowly completed alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine
was then bottled between the last week of March and the first week of April,
following the vintage.
Tasting Note
An innovative baby Super-Tuscan, Dogajolo combines the power and deep flavours
of a young wine, with the elegance and balance from the oak ageing. Full bodied,
yet soft on the palate with fruity cherry notes interlaced with coffee, vanilla and spice,
this is complex and well-developed.
Serving Suggestion
Given its fruitiness, Dogajolo can be paired with first courses and white meats, but
shows at its best with full-flavored dishes such as roasts, grilled meats, cold cuts and
Tuscan regional specialities.
