Winemaker Notes

Do ut des is a reflection of the unique and stimulating terroir of the fascinating Tuscan region. A modern and free expression of the legacy of ancient lands, grapes are grown in clayey and sandy soils an radiate elegance and strength.

James Suckling
This is an extremely pretty red with blackberry, currant and light dark chocolate. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a long and polished finish. Fresh and very clean. A beauty. Drink or hold.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

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.

The Cresti family have been proprietors of Carpineta Fontalpino Vineyard since the 1960's and traces of the wine making traditions date as far back as the past century. The name Carpineta Fontalpino has never changed. It has its roots in two historical places of the area of Montaperti. We find Carpineta, a site where typical trees characteristic of this area, with silver back leaves, called "Carpini" grow and Fontalpino, the water source with the back drop of the pine trees of Montaperti - two noteworthy places of this important medieval historical site. The vineyard is located in the middle of Tuscany, very close to the splendid town of Siena and the historical village of Castelnuovo Berardenga. The surrounding territory is rich in history, legends and love that are experienced by all those who are fortunate to visit it. Its unforgettable atmosphere creates strong emotions. Locals strive to maintain the unaltered countryside and its traditions intact, proud to be part of such a generous area, which never ceases to surprise.

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.
