Carpineto Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT Farnito 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

[The 2000 Vintage is SOLD OUT] However the 2001 vintage a great vintage in Italy is equally as good. This delicious Super Tuscan is ruby red with orange reflections. The bouquet is clean and intense with complex hints of spices licorice mocha vanilla and cherries. Full bodied with an elegant finish this Italian Cabernet strikes the perfect balance between a California Cabernet and a Chianti.

We tried this bottle while visiting NY from CA at the recommendation of the waiter. We were looking for a big bold red similar to a big Napa Cabernet. It was very very good and definately held its own. At a price point of only $25-30 it is excellent and I have ordered a few more for home.
