Carpineta Fontalpino 


Organic - Chianti Classico, Super Tuscan, Spumante Metodo Classico

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.

Gioia is the vineyard’s oenologist and she is responsible for all the production phases, from the wine making to the aging.

DO Ut Des 2017

"Made with certified organic fruit, the Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino 2017 Do Ut Des is a beautiful and graceful blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Castelnuovo Berardenga. The wine is subtle and soft, with unfolding aromas of dark fruit, spice, eucalIptus oil, licorice and smoke. It offers terrific depth and width. The vintage’s challenges of heat and drought are not registered whatsoever. There is a lot to recommend here. Tr& it with some crostini and liver pate."
