From: Tuscany, Italy
Carpineto is a partnership between the award-winning winemaker Giovanni C. Sacchet and the dynamic Antonio M. Zaccheo, offering a product line of wines spanning from the most prestigious Tuscan DOCG appellations to varietal specific wines of great structure as well as innovative proprietary blends. About 90% of Carpineto's wine production is red wine, 65% of this being "Riserva" wines that are aged three or more years before their release date. Since Carpineto generally ages their red wines six to twelve months longer than the minimum time required by DOCG appellation rules the cellars hold at least three consecutive vintages of wine at any given time. This long aging period has allowed Carpineto to build a reputation for high quality and consistency, vintage after vintage.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant ruby red with a tendency to garnet. The nose is ethereal and extraordinarily elegant with hints of violet and wood. The palate is dry, harmonic, fruity, and velvety, with an elegant texture and long finish.
Pairing: Pairs well with aged cheeses and game, especially wild boar.
