Chianti Classico DOCG Carpineto 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

In the beautiful olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and Siena lay the quaint hilltop villages of the Chianti Classico region. The wine of the same name is produced exclusively in this charming and beautiful area. This Chianti Classico is made from vineyards planted to a minimum of 80% Sangiovese and a maximum of 20% of Canaiolo and other red grape varietals. This wine is velvety, round, full bodied and balanced with hints of wood and violets on the nose. The palate is warm and savoury with well integrated tannins.

In 1967, Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo set out to revolutionize wine and produce a Chianti Classico so presitigious that it would gain international renown.   These two wine fanatics saw an enormous potential that was not being used in Tuscan soil. They understood that applying cutting-edge technology and pushing the standard of quality even further, would create the ultimate of wines. And they did just that.   Giovanni and Antonio made the Carpineto wine brand into an international success, which is currentlyexported to over 70 countries worldwide.   The intensity, integrity and consistency of their wine has earned them a solid reputation among consumers and critics alike. Carpineto wines, especially the aged reds, have received numerous awards and accolades.   Innovators by tradition, Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo continue to experiment with some of their classics with a strong focus on traditional Tuscan values. Carpineto has proven itself a leader in both prestigious wines such as Tuscan DOCG and innovative structured varietal wines. Read less

Great ruby robe. Full bodied with notes of cherry. Quite easy to drink, but still not the best vintage.

Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet and farms 424 hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany’s most prestigious appellations. The original aim of the producers was to produce modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation (a radical departure when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional wine-making style) - This has been admirably fulfilled. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet’s daughter, Caterina, has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree. Grapes : Sangiovese 85%, Canaiolo 10%, Local varieties 5% Region : Italy / Tuscany / Chianti Classico DOCG Maker : Giovanni Carlo Sacchet Notes : Velvety, round, full bodied and balanced with hints of wood and violets on the nose.
