Carpineto Dogajolo 2009
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!
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.

Where Vino Nobile grapes that donrsquo;t make the cut for the Riserva go, as the estate doesnrsquo;t produce a regular Vino Nobile, just a riserva. This perennial Best Buy combines crunchy, fresh cherry fruit with hints of caramel, coffee and chocolate. Itrsquo;s a cheerful wine that should win Tuscany plenty of fans, at a great price.
An innovative blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, Dogajolo has impressive depth and texture despite the fruit-forward style. An affordable Super Tuscan.

Rich, but doesnrsquo;t really go anywhere, with one-dimensional cherry and blackberry notes. Moderately firm tannins shore up the finish. Best from 2013 through 2018.

Here's a tasty, compact Sangiovese-Cabernet blend from the excellent 2001 vintage that gives pure fruit and varietal character. It's chewy and textured, definitely more so than your average Chianti, and there's some meaty rusticity and light oak to punch things up a notch. Good with grilled meats and vegetables, or with pizza. Pronounced dogo-yolo.
