Dogajolo Rosso Toscana IGT 2014, Carpineto, Tuscany

Tasting Note

Full and soft on the palate with fruity aromas, hint of cherry interlaced with coffee, vanilla and spice.

Producer Note

Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet and farms 424 hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany's most prestigious appellations. The original aim of the producers - to produce modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation (a radical departure when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional wine-making style) - has been admirably fulfilled. Pioneers of internationalism of Tuscany, the Dogajolo is a great example of this ethos of action. Carpineto has been named IWSC Italian Wine Producer Of The Year in 2003 and was the first ever Italian winery ever to win the IWSC International Winemaker Of The Year Trophy in 1994. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet's daughter, Caterina, has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree.

Winemaking

The two grape varieties were vinified separately, as they ripen at different times. Towards the end of fermentation they were blended and placed in barriques where they slowly completed alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine was then bottled at the end of May following the vintage and released for sale in September.

Serving Suggestion

Given its fruitiness, Dogajolo can be paired with first courses and white meats, but shows at its best with full flavored dishes such as roasts, grilled meats, cold cuts and Tuscan regional specialities.
