New product

Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva is a blend of 90% Sangiovese Grosso (Prugnolo Gentile) and 10% Canaiolo Nero. The wine is aged for 2 years in large Slavonian oval oak barrels, with a small part in French oak barrels, before bottling, which gives the wine earthy dark liquorice tones, a smooth palate with lovely weight and an elegant, long finish.

More info

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.

Carpineto was named IWSC Italy Wine Producer Of The Year in 2005 and was the first ever Italian winery ever to win the IWSC International Winemaker Of The Year Trophy in 1994. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter, Francisca who both previously worked in the wine trade in America. Giovanni Sacchets daughter, Caterina, is studying to become a wine maker.

The Carpineto winemaking style produces wines that are full-bodied, complex and fruity in character, with a round, supple tannin structure and a long, persistent finish. Among the rolling hills of the Vino Nobile Region of Tuscany, lie 100 hectares of vineyards planted with new clones of Sangiovese and other international varieties on modern rootstocks dedicated to Carpineto's Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Single Vineyards Programme (Appodiati).
