Carpineto are a producer of classic wine styles based in Chianti Classico. They are towards the eastern flank of Chianti Classico in the town of Dudda, from where they are able to make wines that come from all over Tuscany in a house-style that is more modern than traditional, but that preserves the best flavours and qualities that can be found in the soils and vines of their estates. The grapes for this wine are grown some considerable way from Dudda, but because of the attention to harvesting and preserving of grapes, they are able to maintain freshness right until the winemaking begins. It really means that Montepulciano gets transported to Chianti without any change to the quality. This Riserva is a super-charged Vino Nobile and is rich, intense and full bodied, with dark fruit flavours, integrated Oak and a long life ahead for those who want to age it.
