  • Winemaker Notes 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.
  • Tasting Notes This blend of Sangiovese, Gamay and Alicante delivers a mix of dark fruits, spices, leather, grilled herbs, licorice and dark chocolate, which weave their way through the wine. The full body is supported by soft, velvety tannins and balanced by a nice touch of underlying acidity. It finishes up long and plush laced with another layer of dark fruits and spices. A fantastic wine that will be approachable upon release and should also elvove nicely for a few years to come.
