Carpineto Vin Santo del Chianti Farnito 1999

The Vin Santo from Carpineto is a complex dessert wine with an intense flavour and a persistent finish. This fabulous dessert wine is wonderful when served with all forms of dessert and strong cheeses.

Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Antonio Zaccheo and Giovanni Sacchet and farms 424 hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany's most prestigious appellations. The original aim of the producers - to produce modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti Classico appellation (a radical departure when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional wine-making style) - has been admirably fulfilled. Pioneers of internationalism of Tuscany, the Dogajolo is a great example of this ethos of action. Carpineto has been named IWSC Italian Wine Producer Of The Year in 2003 and was the first ever Italian winery ever to win the IWSC International Winemaker Of The Year Trophy in 1994. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet's daughter, Caterina, has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree.

Vinification
The harvested grapes are dried in wooden boxes then slowly barrel fermented during the winter months. Part of the wine was aged in traditional "caratelli", small barrels made of chestnut, the other part was aged in oak barrels, all for a total of 14 years. The wine was bottled and left to rest in a temperature controlled underground cellar.

Viticulture
Single wire cordon. Manual and mechanical harvesting.

Tasting Note
Lovely balance between the complex, intense balsamic fragrances, alcohol and sweetness. Full of toffee and peach flavours together with walnuts, this wine is concentrated, long and persistent on the finish.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Carpineto Vin Santo del Chianti Farnito is best served at 5-7°C as an aperitif, or at 16°C with desserts, and strong cheese such as Pecorino and Gorgonzola. Also excellent by itself as a meditation wine.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
