Carpineto Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT Farnito 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The Farnito line represents the summit of wine making for Carpineto. The name “Farnito” comes from a type of oak tree known as “Farna”. Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon comes from grapes grown in vineyards in Carpineto’s Gaville (Florence) and Chianciano/Montepulciano (Siena) estates. These select vineyards are ideally suited for the production of great wines. The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are scrupulously field selected from the end of September through early October. The grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately. The final blend is assembled and the cuvee is aged in small oak barrels for about 10 months. It is then bottled and held at the winery until it is ready for release. This carefully crafted wine is bottled without final filtration, and therefore may develop a bit of sediment with age. This will not affect the wine, which if stored properly, will develop for a decade or more.

Very typical "dusty" Cabernet nose, not very complex. In the mouth nearly no fruit very hard tannins. There is still a feeling of the quality thisd wine once had, but the fruit already disappered. Still good to go with your best steak, but no solo wine any more.

Tasting Notes:

The Farnito Cabernet is a brilliant, intense, ruby red color with orange reflections. It has a clean bouquet that transmits complex hints of spices, licorice, vanilla and cherries. The taste is full, rich, and persistent with an elegant tannin structure and finish.
