Chianti Classico Riserva Carpineto Tuscany Italy


Chianti Classico stretches between Florence and Siena, drawing ample tourists from these two highly trafficked cities. The terrain is winding, with steep hillsides and verdant forests. The hills help blockade the region from some of the harsher eastern winds, while the southern end of the DOCG is flatter and more exposed. The dynamism of the landscape provides for the incredible diversity of Chianti Classico wines, creating a series of distinct mesoclimates with varying exposures, elevations, and slopes. Two important soil types are noted in Chianti Classico: galestro and alberese. Galestro consists of a friable schistic clay, while alberese is a harder marlstone analogous to limestone. A third soil, macigno, is a grayish-blue sandstone, and another, calcareous tufa, is found in the south. Top Chianti Classico vineyards will usually consist of some combination of galestro and alberese.

Placed in oak barrels of various sizes and origins (Slavonian and French) for one year or more, the wine is then briefly transferred back into stainless steel tanks before bottling.
