Region Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico
Brand Carpineto
In the beautiful 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 charming and beautiful area. Carpineto is produced from vineyards planted to a minimum of 80% Sangiovese and a maximum of 20% of Canaiolo and other red grape varietals. For the vinification, a maceration of the skins of medium duration and fermentation under controlled temperature conditions takes place. Aging is in oak barrels of various sizes and origins (Slavonian and French) for one year or more, the wine is then briefly transferred back into stainless steel tanks before bottling. After bottling the wine is aged in temperature controlled cellars for at least 10 months before release. In order to deliver the highest quality Carpineto has chosen to age this wine longer than the 2 years required by appellation rules for a Riserva. Perfect to serve with pasta, roasts and game.

Carpineto is a dynamic estate that makes wines across Tuscany's best appellations. The Carpineto 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a thickly layered red that boasts ample fruit weight and succulence. The wine proudly trots out blackberry and dried plum that is supported by savory spice, toasted oak and campfire ash. This edition clearly shows the fruit sharpness and purity of the vintage, and it paints a complete portrait of Greve in Chianti, a wine region with cool zones, strong summer sunshine and wild woods. This is a terrific Riserva from Carpineto that hits all the right marks.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is wonderfully fleshy and expressive, and yet has plenty of structural underpinnings. Dark cherry, plum, spice, menthol, licorice and mocha open up with a bit of air. The balance of fruit depth allied to a mid-weight sense of structure is just compelling. Readers will find a potent, bruising Riserva with tons of character.
