Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva 2011 750ML    
Sku: 21607

Located in the beautiful countryside between Florence and Siena, the vineyards dedicated to the production of this wine are located along the hillsides of the Chianti Classico region in the small town of Dudda near Greve in Chianti. Planted at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level in soils of calcareous origin with a high content of clay and sandstone. Fruit from approximately 20 hectares of land is used in the production of this wine. The spurred cordon training method was implemented achieving a density of 5500 vines/hectare. The vines benefit from a typical Mediterranean climate of warm summers and mild winters.

Tasting notes
A complex and elegant bouquet highlighted by persistent raspberry and vanilla aromas. It is warm and full with a velvety mouthfeel and a long, generous finish.

Wine maker notes
Produced from estate-owned vineyards located in the picturesque countryside in the DOCG appellation in Tuscany. Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva showcases an elegant bouquet of persistent raspberry and vanilla aromas lent from extensive aging in a combination of French and Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months and bottle for 10 months. Full in body and velvety in texture, the finish is long and generous.

Food pairing
perfect with roasts and game.

Review:
Excellent chianti value. Bouqet of oak, vanilla, and some sour cherries. Palate dry and firm. Tart and vibrant. Sour cherries and raspberries. Oak noted and good. Tannins medium and velvety with long finish as advertised.
