Dogajolo IGT Rot L Carpineto 2007
The Chianti Classico region is in the beautiful olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and Siena. Chianti Classico is produced exclusively in this charming area. Made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo grapes, only the finest fruit is selected from the Carpineto estate vineyards in Dudda for Chianti Classico. The wine derives its rich color and flavor from maceration of the skins in the must and fermentation at a controlled, low temperature. It is aged in oak casks for a minimum of 6 months and then bottle aged for a minimum of 4-6 months before release. One of Tuscany’s outstanding values, Carpineto Chianti Classico is comparable in size and style to many Riservas.
Excellent medium bodied red; low tannins, fruit; easy to drink
Not a bad chianti
Picked this up at of my usual vendors for pricey Italian reds, mainly just to try it, since it was a bargain compared to what I tend to usually go for. Pleasantly surprised. A great "house" wine. Light, yet sophisticated. I am partial to wines that have some noticable tannins and minerality, and are not overly sweet or fruity. Doesn't taste like a young wine at all. Great value for money if you ask me.
Great with Osso Bucco
We got a case for a gift and I think it's very good. Light, not too sweet and no after taste. A great value.
This really young but good red is a great "drink anytime" wine. Very fruity and will stand on its own. Try this instead of a Malbec for BBQs. This is especially great at $9.99 @ Peco's in DE.
