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 : Chardonnay 40%, Grechetto 30%, Sauvignon Blanc 30% Region : Italy / Tuscany / Toscana IGP Maker : Giovanni Carlo Sacchet Notes : A medium bodied, dry and pleasantly velvety white wine with a fruity, elegantly aromatic bouquet and a soft finish. Serve : At 10-12C as an aperitif or with typical Mediterranean cuisine, such as salads, pasta, seafood and white meats. Excellent also with spicy Asian food. ABV : 13%
