Buy Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vigneto Poggio Sant' Enrico
Color: dark, deep, blackish-ruby hue. Bouquet: bold and intense, with black fruit and plum aromas, black pepper, walnut and hints of vanilla. Taste: full-bodied palate with exceptional black fruit intensity. Big structure with supple tannins and a long, persistent finish
Wine & Spirits 91 points - Sourced from two plots situated at an elevation of 1000 feet just outside the town of Montepulciano, this aged 12 months in new French and American oak barrels. It offers a modern take on Vino Nobile: Dense and firmly tannic, with spicy, plummy fruit, it reveals notes of mushroom and forest floor after time in the glass. Decant this for a few hours and enjoy it with a rare steak.  (Apr 2015)

Wine Spectator 90 points - Flavors of black cherry, black currant and spice highlight this red. The tannins are mouthcoating, but in the end there’s enough sweetness for balance. Best from 2015 through 2028. 340 cases made.-BS  (Jun 15 2014)

Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Powerfully built with nice depth, this is loaded with succulent black cherry sensations layered with underbrush, tobacco, licorice, black pepper, clove and mocha accents. The palate is balanced by firm, velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Hold for complexity. Drink 2016-2026.  (Nov 2014)

Wine maker notes
This single vineyard Vino Nobile hails from Carpineto’s Montepulciano Estate in only the finest vintages. An intense bouquet of black fruit defines the Sant’ Enrico parcel. Plum notes are interlaced with nutty and peppery notes and hints of vanilla rendered from extensive oak aging - 12 months in new French and American oak barrels and 4 years in bottle. It is full bodied with structured tannins and a long, persistent finish.

Food pairing
best served with roasts and grilled meats, especially “fiorentina-style” T-Bone steak.

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.
