Carpineto is an Italian producer with several estates across highly regarded Tuscan DOCG regions. It was founded in 1967 by Giovanni Carlo Sachet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo with the aim of being a high-quality Chianti Classico producer. Carpineto’s original focus on quality, and on the Classico region, was uncommon in the 1960s when Chianti was more famous for its large-scale production and the ‘fiasco’ straw basket. The Chianti Classico DOC had only been formalized in 1966 and didn’t get elevated to DOCG status until the 1980s. Carpineto also has a range of single-vineyard selections and proprietary blends at the IGT level, including a few Super Tuscans. Cabernet Sauvignon plays a significant part in these wines, while Chardonnay is the most represented variety in its limited selection of white wine.
