Carpineto Dogajolo Rosso 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: deep garnet with violet reflections. Bouquet: very fruity and intense, with hints of cherry, coffee, vanilla and spice. Flavor: full, soft on the palate, complex, well developed. Gastronomy: 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.

In 1967, Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo set out to revolutionize wine and produce a Chianti Classico so presitigious that it would gain international renown.   These two wine fanatics saw an enormous potential that was not being used in Tuscan soil. They understood that applying cutting-edge technology and pushing the standard of quality even further, would create the ultimate of wines. And they did just that.   Giovanni and Antonio made the Carpineto wine brand into an international success, which is currentlyexported to over 70 countries worldwide.   The intensity, integrity and consistency of their wine has earned them a solid reputation among consumers and critics alike. Carpineto wines, especially the aged reds, have received numerous awards and accolades.   Innovators by tradition, Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo continue to experiment with some of their classics with a strong focus on traditional Tuscan values. Carpineto has proven itself a leader in both prestigious wines such as Tuscan DOCG and innovative structured varietal wines. Read less

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

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.

STANDARD 6 x 750ml BOTTLES 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%
