Carpineto Dogajolo Toscano 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

80% sangiovese, 20% cabernet Sauvignon This is packed with smoldering herb, black currants and jammy black cherries on the nose. A bit soft on entry and frankly fruity with some wild raspberry and blackberry notes early on the palate. This is a bit fleshy and made in a very friendly style with a nice touch of grape skin tannins and some well integrated acids which makes this well behaved at this price point but leaves the wine feeling a bit flat in the mouth. raw, simple and short on the finish with the tannins really taking control, this is a pleasant, rustic little fruity wine with attractive aromatics. 82pts

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.

Tasting Notes: 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 fl avors and tannins. Great for everyday drinking, this wine is a great value that pairs well with a wide variety of dishes, such as antipasti platters, grilled white meats, and tomatobased pasta dishes. Aging: 6 months in previously-used French & American oak barrels & cement vats followed by 4-6 months in bottle. Blend: 70% Sangiovese 30% Cabernet Sauvignon Alcohol: 13.2% pH: 3.56 RS: 1.7 g/l

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. Grapes: Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Vinification Technique: 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. Finishing: Dogajolo is bottled between the last week of March and the first week of April of the year after harvest. It is excellent when young, but as with any red wine of good mettle, it ages well.

Elegant fruit aromas create a pleasant bouquet. Medium-bodied with good acidity and a dry, smooth finish.

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.

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