||30% Canaiolo Nero, 70% Sangiovese Grosso
||Maceration of the skins with the must for 10-15 days at 25-30 °C (77-86 °F). Frequent pump-overs are accomplished using special pumps designed to move solid parts (skins and seeds) very gently.
||2 years in large 5,500 liter Slavonian oval oak barrels, with a small part in French oak barrels. After bottling the wine is aged in our temperature controlled 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 the 3 years required by appellation rules for a Riserva wine.
||Aged cheeses and game, especially wild boar.
