Carpineto Rosso Dogajolo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Made from Sangiovese up to 70% and Cabernet Sauvignon and other varieties up to 30%, the exact proportions can vary with each vintage. 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. The colour is deep garnet with violet reflections, and the nose is very fruity and intense, with hints of cherry, coffee, vanilla and spice. It is full and soft on the palate, complex, well developed. 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.

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.

Deep, vivid, ruby to purple color, a fragrant bouquet of cherries and herbs accented by hints of vanilla and coffee. The taste is complex, ample yet round on the palate with a soft tannic finish that lingers.

A bright and bubbly red, with simple dried cherry aromas and flavors, light body and a fresh finish.

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.

Where Vino Nobile grapes that don't make the cut for the Riserva go, as the estate doesn'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. It'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 doesn't really go anywhere, with one-dimensional cherry and blackberry notes. Moderately firm tannins shore up the finish. Best from 2013 through 2018.
