Carpineto Poggio Sant Enrico Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2010

A mature wine, intense with opulent earthy and gamey
flavours and a long, textured and savoury 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, 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 the 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 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 and oenology degree.


Vintage
The 2010 vintage was a very good year, with heat in July which contributed to the
grapes reaching maturity and good ripeness levels. The resulting wines highlight the
strong colours and intense typicity of the Sangiovese variety, with excellent phenolic
components in balance with alcohol and acidity levels - all the prerequisites for good
ageing potential.


Vineyard
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 which are grown in a deep sedimentary soil with
sandy clay and limestone.


Winemaking
The grapes were fermented in small lots at temperatures of between 25 to 30°C
using indigenous, wild yeasts. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and
was followed by 12 days of maceration with frequent aerations, pump overs and
punch-downs for optimum polyphenolic extraction. Malolactic fermentation took
place simultaneously. It was then aged in new French and American oak barrels for
13 months. The wine was bottled unfiltered and bottle aged in underground cellars
for approximately four years.


Tasting Note
Bold and intense, this mature wine shows pronounced black fruit aromas, combined
with hints of walnut, black pepper spice and vanilla. With great intensity of colour
and flavour, the fine integrated tannins underpin the complex palate and lead to a
long and powerful finish.
