Producer Note
Founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet, Carpineto farms 500
hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany's most prestigious
appellations. The original aim of the producers – to make modern, a world-class red wine
from the Chianti Classico appellation has been admirably fulfilled. The Farnito and
Dogajolo wines demonstrate the winery’s pioneering approach to making wines from
international varieties in Tuscany. Formerly IWSC Italian Wine Producer of the Year,
Carpineto was also the first ever Italian winery to be awarded the IWSC
International Winemaker of the Year. Antonio Zaccheo is now assisted by his son
Antonio and their daughter Francesca, 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 and oenology degree.

Vineyard
In the beautiful olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and Siena lie
the quaint hilltop villages of the Chianti Classico region. The wine of the same name is
produced exclusively in this charming and beautiful area in stony soils.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled vats, followed by a skin contact
maceration to extract colour, flavour and fine tannins. The wine was transferred to a
combination of oak barrels and casks of Slavonian and French origin for a minimum of
12 months. It was then transferred back into stainless tanks briefly prior to bottling. The
wine was bottle aged in temperature-controlled cellars for a minimum of 10 months
prior to release.
Tasting Note
Rich, velvety, full-flavoured and warming, with hints of vanilla and raspberry, this is a fine
Chianti Classico with silky tannins and a generous finish.
