A full bodied and modern Chianti Classico (despite the rustic label). This is from the Classico area of Chianti, which means higher quality vineyards with controlled yields. More concentrated, rounded, and structured. It's well balanced with cherry and red fruit aromas, leading to long and succulent finish. Nice and dry too. Perfect with all Tuscan foods, and quite simply the best pizza wine...
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.
Grapes: Sangiovese 80%, Canaiolo 20%
