External Reviews for Carpineto Chianti Classico
Aromas of violets, berries and cherries make up the bouquet. A full-bodied wine that is well-balanced with a velvety texture and rounded tannins.
Broad and robust, packing cherry, currant and spice flavors into a muscular frame. Balanced in an exuberant way, showing moderate length. Drink now through 2018. 25,000 cases made.
Famed here in the U.S. for their Toscana rosso — the Dogajolo — Carpineto also produces this delicious, traditionally-styled Chianti Classico that is drier, with delightful acidity which lends itself to a greater variety of food pairings. Tart cherry and cranberry fruits focus the faint spice notes, leading to a lip-smacking, refreshing finish.
