Produced from estate-owned vineyards located in the picturesque countryside in the DOCG appellation in Tuscany. Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva showcases an elegant bouquet of persistent raspberry and vanilla aromas lent from extensive aging in a combination of French and Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months and bottle for 10 months. Full in body and velvety in texture, the finish is long and generous.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is a richly textured expression that is packed tight with ripe fruit, black cherry, moist soil and cigar box. You get a lot of power and density in this warm-climate Tuscan red (made with 90% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo). In fact, it almost goes overboard, maybe just for a moment, but ultimately regains and maintains its sense of balance. Cured tobacco and smoke fill in the rear. Some 200,000 bottles were produced.
