Wine maker notes
The estate-ownd Sillano vineyard is located atop a hill near Gaville in Chianti. Intense aromas of blackberry jam and licorice define this single vineyard Super Tuscan, while spicy notes of cacao, coffee, black pepper, and a hint of vanilla appear on the close. Carpineto Sillano is a powerful, full bodied wine, with integrated tannins and an oaky finish. Aged in new French and American oak barrels for 12 months and cellared in bottle for 4 years.

Technical notes
60% Sangiovese, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food pairing
best served with game roasts and grilled meats.

Producer
Founded in 1967, Carpineto is a partnership between Giovanni C. Sacchet and Antonio M. Zaccheo, whose original mission was to produce a world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation. This was a radical departure from the marketplace of the times when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional winemaking style. Carpineto’s visionary founders recognized the untapped potential of the Tuscan landscape to produce truly great wines. By applying modern viticulture and winemaking techniques, they dramatically exceeded the quality standards of the day. Under their leadership, Carpineto developed an award winning, international reputation for elegant wines of approachable intensity and extract, as well as consistency vintage after vintage. Today Carpineto has reinforced these characteristics, while maintaining an approachable wine style due in part to an extensive bottle-aging program. In fact ”riserva” wines are bottle-aged a total of six to twelve months longer than the minimum time required by DOCG appellation rules. Today experimentation goes hand in hand with the spirit of innovation of the founders, with respect for historical Tuscan values. The product line includes wines from the most prestigious Tuscan DOCG appellations to varietal specific wines of great structure, as well as innovative proprietary blends. Carpineto exports the majority of its wine production to over 70 countries worldwide. About 95% of Carpineto’s wine production is red wine, with the majority being wines that are aged three or more years before their release date.
