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
A white 'Super-Tuscan' produced from estate grown vineyards planted after a
careful study aimed at identifying the best environment for the production of this
wine. The hillside, dry farmed vineyards are located within the Chianciano and
Montepulciano properties. The soils in the vineyards are a mix of chalk and clay.
The hand harvested grapes were destemmed, the juice was then cooled and left
with the skins for a brief period of time. After pressing and settling, the wine was then
fermented under temperature controlled conditions. The wine was then immediately
racked off, filtered and kept at low temperatures, maintaining the fruity aromas in
their freshest state and allowed for a natural stabilisation process. The wine was
clarified or stabilised using only natural products.
An elegantly aromatic white wine with a harmonious blend of spice, zesty citrus fruits
flavours, and a crisp finish.
An excellent aperitif or serve with Mediterranean flavoured salads, seafood and
white meats. Also a great partner to full flavoured, spicy Asian cuisine.
