Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva DOCG 2013
Carpineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva DOCG 2013: This exceptional red wine derives its name from the Renaissance town of Montepulciano, located in the province of Siena. The term “Nobile” seems to originate from the fact that in the past its production was reserved exclusively for aristocratic and noble families of the area. Wine Spectator #11 of 2018 Top 100

“The stunning bouquet of ripe black cherry, black currant, leather and woodsy spice notes is enticing, while the sweet fruit is a match for the dense structure. The lengthy finish lingers, with tobacco, eucalyptus and iron accents”. – B. Sanderson, October 2018
Carpineto wines are grounded in tradition that influence everything from the sustainable efforts which go into how wine grapes are cultivated to how wine cellars are maintained to follow the natural phenomenon of grape transformation. Carpineto wines are the fruit of an age-old connection to the land that bears its grapes and gives them the unique qualities that vary from wine to wine. Any wine which fully express the aromas and characteristics of its land and soil, are sure to develop vibrant and fragrant qualities with years of aging.
Carpineto wines are the result of advanced scientific and enological processes and techniques which respect the territorial integrity of the land.
Over 95% of the Carpineto production is of red wines, the majority of which are wines which age 3+ years before reaching the market for sale, with current figures at over 3 million bottles of wine being sold yearly.
