The Carpineto Estate in Montalcino is one of the highest in the denomination at about 500 metres above sea level. The soil is sedimentary in nature with a marl skeleton underneath clayey accumulations from the Pliocene epoch (15 million years ago). The slight exposure to the north, in a panoramic and ventilated position, gives the wines of this 53 hectare estate a unique microclimate that gives the Brunello intense and complex aromas of wild berries, cherries and Mediterranean spices supported by a beautiful freshness, elegance, fine structure and great longevity.
"A bright and focused red, revealing cherry, currant, spice and iron flavors. Lively and succulent on the almost puckering finish, showing terrific balance and a long aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2043." The Wine Spectator, 94 Points
"Aromas of orange peel, wet earth, bark, stones and sour cherries. Fresh, balanced and mineral, with a medium to full body and fine-grained tannins. Very drinkable. Drink now or hold." James Suckling, 91 Points
