Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva 2017

A traditional Tuscan wine showing meaty and savoury
flavours enhanced by earthy and red cherry tones, silky
and elegant with a lovely satisfying finish.
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.
Vintage
This was a unique vintage due to the severe drought that affected the vineyards, which
resulted in significantly reduced yields and limited production. Consequently, the lower
yields produced wines which show an excellent concentration of ripe fruit flavours.
Vineyard
The estate covers 84.5 hectares of dry-farmed vineyards among the rolling hills of the
Vino Nobile region of Tuscany. The vineyards are planted with a minimum of 70%
Sangiovese (known locally as Prugnolo Gentile), Canaiolo and international grape
varietals. These vineyards are trained according to modern trellising methods with
clones and rootstocks varying according to soil type. Planting densities here often
exceed 8,500 plants per hectare, yielding wines of great concentration and finesse.
Winemaking
Maceration of the skins took place for 10 to 15 days at temperatures of 25 to 30°C. The
frequent pump-overs used special pumps which were designed to move the skins and
seeds very gently. The wine was aged for two years in 5,500-litre oak barrels, while a
small proportion was aged in French barriques. After bottling, the wine was aged in
Carpineto's temperature-controlled cellars for a minimum of six months prior to release.
Tasting Note
An extraordinarily elegant, ethereal wine delivering red fruits with hints of violet and oak
spice. Beautifully balanced with an elegantly textured, velvety palate and a lovely, long
finish.
