Carpineto Farnito Chardonnay IGT

​Produced from a two hectare (5 acres) dry farmed vineyard located south of Florence on the hillsides between the Chianti and the Valdarno regions at an elevation of 350 meters (1,000 feet) above sea level. The carefully selected Chardonnay clusters are typically picked between the last week in August and the first week of September, and then rushed to the crusher in small boxes to protect them from the slightest damage prior to vinification. Low temperature maceration on the skins and a slow and careful oak barrel fermentation of the must started by selected yeasts. In January the wine is racked off and returned to the same barrels where it then ages for about another four months before bottling. Before release this wine is then bottle aged in temperature controlled cellars at 13°C (55°F).

​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.

​The appearance is a straw yellow colour with tawny reflections. The nose is a harmonious and consistent bouquet with notes of tropical fruit and spices, particularly raspberry and vanilla. On the palate it is dry, soft, savoury, and harmonious. The rare versatility of this wine allows it to be served as an aperitif, as well as during and after meals.
