Carpineto Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano Riserva DOCG 2012

Carpineto
This exceptional red wine derives its name from the renaissance town of Montepulciano, located in the province of Siena. The term “Nobile” seems to originate from the fact that in the past its production was reserved exclusively for the aristocratic, noble families of the town.

Aged two years in large 5500 liter Slavonian oval oak barrels, with a small part in French oak barrels.

After bottling the wine is aged in controlled temperature cellars for at least 12 months before release. In order to deliver the highest quality, Carpineto has chosen to age this wine one year longer than 3 years required by appellation rules for a Riserva wine.
