Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
This is a Bordeaux-inspired blend made with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2015 Do Ut Des is a hearty and darkly concentrated expression that is layered, rich and beautifully concentrated. This wine works exceptionally well in a vintage like 2015 that had a warm summer season. The wine's appearance is black and impenetrable. The aromas span from pressed rose to spice and leather. This wine shows big ambition with a delicate disposition.
A chewy version, with concentrated flavors of blackberry, plum and earth, backed by fresh acidity, this turns leaner and more tightly wound as it plays out on the sage- and rosemary-accented finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2019 through 2027.
Gioia is the vineyard's oenologist and she is responsible for all the production phases, from the wine making to the aging. She literally “picks up” the best grapes so that the whole wine production is imprinted on her own personal style. Filippo is mainly involved in the organizational activities of the land working of the Winery. He is also the commercial and marketing development mind of Carpineta Fontalpino Estates. The property extends to about 80 hectares and presents various cultivars. The vine planted area extends to about 23 hectares in many varieties of specialized vines, sub-divided into grape types of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and other experimental vines (Petit Verdot, Alicante, and many others). The production areas denominations are the one of the Chianti Classico and the one of the Colli Senesi.
Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.
A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
