Firmly structured and tightly wound, with a layer of gripping tannins punctuating the black cherry, leather and cedar flavors. This is expressive and a touch astringent on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024. 12,500 cases made.-BS

This wine begins with aromas that recall red peppers, black berries and spice with a whiff of grilled sage. The palate offers ripe black cherry and plum accented with white pepper and cinnamon-spice and thyme. It still has youthful, aggressive tannins that need a few more years to soften. Drink 2016-2021.

Suave, silky tannins provide the backdrop for the 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and cloves are some of the many notes that flesh out in this supple, highly expressive Riserva. The style is warm, rich and enveloping, with lovely energy and terrific overall balance. This is an impressive showing. -- Antonio Galloni
Soft and supple, with a strawberry sweetness adding to the rich fruit, this comes up against cool, earthy tannins in the end. It’s the tannins that last for now, needing bottle age for the fruit to extend.

Wine maker notes
Produced from estate-owned vineyards located in the picturesque countryside in the DOCG appellation in Tuscany. Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva showcases an elegant bouquet of persistent raspberry and vanilla aromas lent from extensive aging in a combination of French and Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months and bottle for 10 months. Full in body and velvety in texture, the finish is long and generous.

Food pairing
perfect with roasts and game.
