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
The Sangiovese grapes come from vineyards under long-term lease in the upper
Valdarno region where organic agriculture is practised. No synthetic chemicals or
herbicides are used. Only natural organic fertilisers are added to stony soils.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled vats with medium-length
maceration. After the final blend was assembled, the wine was aged for a minimum of
six months in oak casks and then was left to rest in a tank before being bottled. Bottling
took place during the second year following the vintage and the wine has benefitted
from four to six months of bottle ageing prior to release.
