  • This assertive and mature wine exudes bold and intense flavours, prominently displaying black fruit aromas accented by hints of walnut, black pepper spice, and vanilla. It boasts an impressive intensity of colour and flavour, with finely integrated tannins providing a robust foundation for the complex palate, culminating in a commanding and enduring finish.

This wine is produced from 100% Sangiovese fruit from the 1.33-hectare Poggio di Sant'Enrico Piccolo vineyard and the 3.65-hectare Poggio Sant'Enrico Grande vineyards. These are single vineyards situated at between 300 and 350 metres in elevation on Carpineto's Chianciano Estate in Montepulciano, with southern exposures on rolling hillsides.

The Piccolo vineyard was planted in 1978, and the Grande vineyard was planted in 1995, at a density of 4,464 vines per hectare. The vines are trained to a bilateral cordon with vertical shoot positioning. The grapes are clone SS-F9-A on a 420A rootstock, grown in a deep sedimentary soil with sandy clay and limestone.

Established in Greve in Chianti in 1967 by the Sacchet and Zaccheo families, Carpineto farms 500 hectares of sustainably farmed land, spread amongst five carbon-neutral estates in the regions of Chianti Classico, Alto Valdarno, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, and Maremma. Carpineto holds the VIVA certification for sustainability and is accredited with ISO 14001 and IFS. Formerly IWSC Italian Wine Producer of the Year, Carpineto was the first ever Italian winery awarded the IWSC International Winemaker of the Year. Antonio Zaccheo is now assisted by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who have both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet's daughter, Caterina, joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture
