  • Terroir
    In the olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and Siena lay the quaint hilltop villages of the Chianti Classico region. The wine of the same name is produced exclusively in this area.
  • Vinification and maturation
    Maceration of the skins in the must and fermentation at controlled low temperature.
    Aged in Slovenian and French oak for a minimum of one year.
    After bottling, the wine undergoes additional ageing for at least 10 months before release.
    To deliver the highest quality, Carpineto ages this wine longer than the 2 years required by appellation rules for a Riserva.
  • Features
    Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Elegant, full, harmonious and persistent with suggestions of vanilla and raspberry. A long and velvety flavor, full, generous and warm.
  • Food Pairings
    Ideal with grilled or roasted red meats, game and strong cheese.
