Dry puckering tannins, blackberry and bramble bouquet, very light medium palate. Will do well with a few more years to mellow and meld. Complex but unfortunately none of the moorish qualities generally associated with Sangiovese.

Well-integrated notes of almond and spice round off a healthy offering of berries and fresh fruit. This is a compact and simple wine with a vibrant ruby color and clean berry flavors.

Looking for an easygoing wine that has some structure? Dogajolo is predominately Sangiovese with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon to add a little more depth to the wine. It has a gorgeous color resembling that of violets. The nose carries beautiful spice, vanilla and cherries. The flavors are soft on the palate of coffee, cherries and distinct spice. It is a medium-bodied wine with a super finish that likes to hang around! Pair with roasted peppers stuffed with provolone, lamb chops alla pizzaiola or any hearty dish you choose!

This young Super Tuscan is smooth, with flavors of berries, coffee, vanilla and spice. Enjoy this delicious, value-priced wine with roasts, grilled meats or tomato based Italian specialties.

Rich, but doesn't really go anywhere, with one-dimensional cherry and blackberry notes. Moderately firm tannins shore up the finish. Best from 2013 through 2018.

Fruity and intense flavors, with hints of berries, coffee, vanilla, and spice are matched with a supple tannin structure and a long finish.

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. The original aim of the producers - to produce modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation (a radical departure when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional wine-making style) - has been admirably fulfilled. Pioneers of internationalism of Tuscany, the Dogajolo is a great example of this ethos of action. Carpineto has been named IWSC Italian Wine Producer Of The Year in 2003 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 Francesca, who both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet’s daughter, Caterina, has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree. Grapes : Sangiovese 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Region : Italy / Tuscany / Toscana IGP Maker : Giovanni Carlo Sacchet Notes : Fruity, full and soft with notes of cherry, vanilla and spice on the nose. The flavour is full, soft on the palate, complex and well developed. Quite delicious. Serve : At 16-18C with roast and grilled meats, and full flavoured pasta dishes. ABV : 13%

Winemaker's Notes:

Founded in 1967, Carpineto is a partnership between Giovanni C. Sacchet and Antonio M. Zaccheo, whose original mission was to produce a world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation. This was a radical departure from the marketplace of the times when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional winemaking style. This is a very innovative product, a young “Super-Tuscan”, whose characteristics are never found together in the same wine. Dogajolo combines the power and deep colors of a young wine, the elegance and balance given by wood aging, as well as a fruity and fragrant bouquet. A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, the two grape varieties are vinified separately, since they ripen at different times. Toward the end of fermentation they are blended and placed in small wooden casks where they slowly complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. It is excellent when young, but as with any red wine of good mettle, it ages well. It is fruity, full and soft with notes of cherry, vanilla and spice on the nose. Given its fruitiness, Dogajolo can be paired with first courses and white meats, but shows at its best with full-flavored dishes such as roasts, grilled meats, cold cuts and Tuscan regional specialties. Quite delicious!

The nose is fruity with hints of cherry, coffee, vanilla and spice. It is full and soft on the palate with complex and well-developed flavors and tannins.
