Description

Details of wine

The Tuscan red IGT "Do ut des" by Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino is a wine of power and structure. The grapes are wisely blended by the company led by the Crespi family, in order to find the perfect combination of a very deep-rooted local grape variety, such as sangiovese, and two international varieties such as merlot and cabernet sauvignon.
If you love vigorous wine this red is ready even when just bottled, but for those who want to remain stupid it must give this wine a few years of refinement to truly understand its evolutionary abilities.
Vinification in steel, aged in barrique for 18 months and aged for 6 months in bottle before release.

Name: Carpineta Fontalpino
Start-up year: 1967
Cultivated hectares: 28
Winemaker name: Gioia Cresti
Address: Loc. Carpineta - Montaperti - Castelnuovo Berardenga (SI)
Web Site: www.carpinetafontalpino.it

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.
