In 1967, in the ancient vineyards of Tuscany, the families Sacchet and Zaccheo founded its now well-established company, Carpineto.
The Chianti Classico produced in the Greve cellars, in the Dudda area, is famous worldwide and has received important awards such as the 91 points of the Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator in 2011 and 2012 (for its 2006 Reserve).
A wine that has a strong aroma and bouquet with hints of cherry and raspberry, velvety and full on the palate, it is best after aging.
First stored in oak barrels for at least 12 months, and then into reservoirs of steel or enameled concrete, Chianti Classico Riserva Carpineto is made from 80 percent of Sangiovese grapes (the blend of choice also for Chianti Classico) and from 20 percent of other grapes such as Canaiolo.
This long, full, velvety wine is perfect to pair with its rich regional meat dishes such as boar, large roasts and the famous Florentine steaks.
Also very popular overseas, in the US the Chianti Classico Riserva Carpineto was described by the prestigious magazine Wine Spectator as “sweet and velvety, with hints of black cherry, currant, truffle and violet. A wine that slips easily on the palate with a very long flavour and strong tannins.”
Carpineto winery products are very well received both in the United States as well as in Australia, the UK, Canada and Germany.
From Greve in Chianti, this company exports its products to over 70 different countries in the world and, as stated in the Florence Chianti Classico Collection 2015, it is one of the most dynamic in the field.
