Wine Enthusiast 88 points - Savory and approachable, this opens with earthy aromas of tilled soil, ripe plum, dark berry and a whiff of game. The straightforward palate delivers juicy black cherry, blackberry, clove and white pepper alongside polished tannins.  (Sep 2015)

Vinous 90 points - The 2013 Chianti Classico is laced with sweet cherry, raspberry and floral notes, all in a refreshing, mid-weight style that offers tons of near and medium-term appeal. The feminine, gracious side of Sangiovese is quite expressive in this harmonious, impeccable Chianti Classico from Carpineto.  (Sep 2015)

Wine Spectator 89 points - Though medium-bodied, this red is rich and chunky, with tar, earth, cherry and leather flavors. Finishes fresh and long, if on the muscular side. Drink now through 2018. 25,000 cases made. -BS  (Sep 30 2015)

Founded in 1967, Carpineto is a partnership between Giovanni C. Sacchet and Antonio M. Zaccheo, whose original mission was to produce a world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation. This was a radical departure from the marketplace of the times when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional winemaking style. Carpineto’s visionary founders recognized the untapped potential of the Tuscan landscape to produce truly great wines. By applying modern viticulture and winemaking techniques, they dramatically exceeded the quality standards of the day. Under their leadership, Carpineto developed an award winning, international reputation for elegant wines of approachable intensity and extract, as well as consistency vintage after vintage. Today Carpineto has reinforced these characteristics, while maintaining an approachable wine style due in part to an extensive bottle-aging program. In fact ”riserva” wines are bottle-aged a total of six to twelve months longer than the minimum time required by DOCG appellation rules. Today experimentation goes hand in hand with the spirit of innovation of the founders, with respect for historical Tuscan values. The product line includes wines from the most prestigious Tuscan DOCG appellations to varietal specific wines of great structure, as well as innovative proprietary blends. Carpineto exports the majority of its wine production to over 70 countries worldwide. About 95% of Carpineto’s wine production is red wine, with the majority being wines that are aged three or more years before their release date.
