Speciality by lot
  • Vinification and maturation
    The maceration of the skins and fermentation takes place at controlled temperature. Aging is carried out in oak barrels of different sizes and origins for at least one year. The wine is then transferred to stainless steel vats. The refinement continues in bottles for a minimum period of ten months. Carpineto chose to extend the aging beyond the minimum two years required for a Riserva of this appellation, thus making its signature.
  • Features
    Intense ruby color with garnet reflections. Elegant, harmonious and persistent aromas with notes of vanilla and raspberry. In the mouth, a structured but supple, generous and rich wine.
  • Food Pairings
    Ideal with grilled or roasted red meats, game and cheeses strong enough.
