Carpineto Dogajolo Rosso 2001
Bouquet: very fruity and intense, typical of a young wine, with pronounced overtones of wood typically found in aged wines.
Flavor: full, soft on the palate, complex, well developed.
Smoothness: despite its deep color and youth, Dogajolo is full, round, supple, and very approachable. Dogajolo is the perfect compliment to an outdoor barbecue on a sunny spring day.
Alcohol: 12-12.5% by volume.
Carpineto was established in 1967 in the small historic settlement of Dudda, in the township of Greve in Chianti, with the mission of making world class Chianti Classico. This was a radical departure from the marketplace of the Sixties, when the industry was focused on the production of Chianti in the traditional winemaking style sold in the typical "fiasco" bottle. The visionary founders, captured by the Tuscan landscape, the soil and the climate, immediately saw the untapped potential this land possessed to produce great wines. By applying modern viticultural and winemaking methods they set their goals far beyond the quality standards traditional viticultural and winemaking methods were yielding at the time. With this premise, the unyielding determination of their youth, and an uncompromising focus on making the best wines this land could produce the Carpineto mission of marrying tradition with innovation had set sail.
The Carpineto winemaking style is to deliver wines that are full bodied, complex and fruity in character, with a round, supple tannin structure and a long, persistent, clean finish. Despite their approachability upon release, Carpineto's red wines are designed for long cellar aging of twenty years or longer.
