2017 Dogajolo, Toscano Rosso IGT, Carpineto - DOUBLE MAGNUM
Dogajolo combines the power and deep flavours of a young wine, with the elegance and balance from the oak ageing. Full bodied, yet soft on the palate with fruity cherry notes interlaced with coffee, vanilla and spice, this is complex and well-developed. 2017 is a unique vintage due to the severe drought that affected the vineyards, which resulted in significantly reduced yields and a limited production. The wines show excellent concentration of ripe fruit flavours. Sangiovese 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Other Varieties 10%
Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet, They now farm 500 hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany's most prestigious appellations. The original aim of the producers – to make modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation, has been admirably fulfilled. The Farnito and Dogajolo wines demonstrate the winery’s pioneering approach to making wines from international varieties in Tuscany. Carpineto was the first ever Italian winery to be awarded the IWSC International Winemaker of the Year.
