- Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Colli Senesi 2011 Product #27138 (In Stock)
From thin-soiled, vineyards close to Siena, this is a brighter, more elegant, take on Chianti with a pretty perfume of cherry, raspberry and fresh flowers and a juicy, long, finish.
"A suave, smooth red, bursting with black cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Well-balanced, showing drive on the finish. Decant now, or age a year. Drink now through 2016."Wine Spectator 90 points
- Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2009 Product #25787 (In Stock)
Just a terrific bottle of Chianti that’s ready to enjoy now with rich foods – think Tuscan steak! – or to improve for 8+ years in the cellar. A dark fruited, rich, wine with loads of ripe, sweet, fruit on the long finish. A gem.
“Wonderful aromas of blueberries and dark chocolate follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Solid and structured Chianti Classico. One of my favorite producers in the area. Better in 2012.” James Suckling 91 points
“An expression of darker fruit, this red remains fresh and defined by violet, black cherry and spice notes. Polished, but still marked by dense, edgy tannins, matched by sweet fruit on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 600 cases imported.”Wine Spectator 92 points
