Carpineto takes its name from the Greek, carpos, meaning fruit. Founded in 1967 Carpineto quickly developed an international, award-winning reputation for consistently elegant wines. Carpineto began by producing a world-class Chianti Classico, and has expanded to include three additional properties in Tuscany’s most prestigious appellations Montepulciano, Montalcino, and San Gimignano – with over 1,000 acres of land under vine. This Super Tuscan is one of their best. Grapes for Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from their hillside vineyards in Montalcino and in Chianti Classico. 100% Cab Sauv, fermented in stainless steel and then aged 12 months in French and American oak barrels. The wine is then bottle aged for an additional 8 months letting the flavors mesh and the tannins soften. This wine gets 90+ scores every vintage showing it's consistent quality and style. The Wine Spectator scored this 2010 91 points and said "Full of expressive black currant and blackberry flavors, this red is smooth, balanced and backed by a vibrant structure. The fruit echoes on the finish, along with earth and pepper accents. Drink now through 2022."
