It was 1967 when Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo founded Carpineto with the aim of producing an international Chianti Classico. A revolution for those times. The two partners saw enormous potential in Tuscany, where they could produce great wines by applying state-of-the-art techniques and increasing the quality standards of the time.
The work of Carpineto is constantly influenced by the deep roots of its tradition and its historical denomination. The vineyards cultivated according to sustainability criteria and the wineries managed in the utmost respect for the natural phenomena of grape processing give birth to wines that have a close connection with the land and reflect the peculiarities of each single vineyard and its denomination. Wines that express the scents and characteristics of the territory in which they originate, and are kept alive and fragrant for many years.
Carpineto products are the result of the use of advanced techniques, based on the science of viticulture and enology, and a consolidated "culture of the territory".
About 95% of the whole production is made up of red wines, and most of it is made up of wines aged three years or more prior to their release. Today, Carpineto sells about 3 million bottles.
