The Chianti Classico of the Carpineta Fontalpino farm is a traditional wine. A wine that contains all the secrets, the merits of a large area of Tuscany where, as in this label, Sangiovese plays the part of the absolute protagonist.
An important label, aged for 12 months in barrique and then bottled, which best expresses the union between Sangiovese and these territories. Round wine, full-bodied, well balanced and extremely satisfying. The vines are always grown according to the dictates of organic agriculture.

Winemaker name: Gioia Cresti
Address: Loc. Carpineta - Montaperti - Castelnuovo Berardenga (SI)

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. We find Carpineta, a site where typical trees characteristic of this area, with silver back leaves, called "Carpini" grow and Fontalpino, the water source with the back drop of the pine trees of Montaperti - two noteworthy places of this important medieval historical site. The vineyard is located in the middle of Tuscany, very close to the splendid town of Siena and the historical village of Castelnuovo Berardenga. The surrounding territory is though rich in history, legends and love that are experienced by all those who are fortunate to visit it. Its unforgettable atmosphere creates strong emotions. As we have the honor and privilege to live here we strive to maintain the unaltered countryside and its traditions intact, proud to be part of such a generous area, which never ceases to surprise us and our guests. Gioia is the vineyard’s oenologist and she is responsible for all the production phases, from the wine making to the aging. She literally “picks up” the best grapes so that the whole wine production is imprinted on her own personal style. Filippo is mainly involved in the organizational activities of the land working of the Winery. He is also the commercial and marketing development mind of Carpineta Fontalpino Estates. The property extends to about 80 hectares and presents various cultivars. The vine planted area extends to about 23 hectares in many varieties of specialized vines, sub-divided into grape types of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and other experimental vines (Petit Verdot, Alicante, and many others). The production areas denominations are the one of the Chianti Classico and the one of the Colli Senesi.
