Tasting notes - An innovative baby Super-Tuscan, Dogajolo combines the power and deep flavors of a young wine, with the elegance and balance from the oak ageing. Full-bodied, yet soft on the palate with fruity cherry notes interlaced with coffee, vanilla, and spice, this is complex and well-developed.

Carpineto Dogajolo Toscana Rosso 2019

Modern Tuscan style displaying red cherry flavors with a
rich mouthfeel, smooth and moreish.
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
Carpineto farms 500 hectares of land, including 200 hectares of woods, sustainably.
Indeed, their woods and vineyards absorb 26% more carbon dioxide than they
produce. Extreme attention is paid to the preservation of the biodiversity of the
vineyards. The family adopts modern agricultural methods on both the vines and the
soils, and eco-friendly products are applied conscientiously. The vines are grown in the
heart of Tuscany in their estate vineyards in the sand, clay, and limestone soils, which
produce elegant wines.
Winemaking
Whole bunches were carefully selected at harvest. The grape varieties were vinified
separately, as they reached maturity at different times. Fermentation took place in
stainless steel vats at 25°C, followed by 15 to 20 days of maceration with frequent
aerations, pump overs, and punch-downs of the cap for optimal polyphenol extraction.
Towards the end of fermentation, they were blended and placed in small wooden
casks where they slowly completed alcoholic and malolactic conversion.
