TASTING NOTE: The toasted herb notes are distinctive, offering rosemary and bay leaf accents to the dried cherry and blackberry core, with accents of fresh orange zest and plenty of cigar box details. Expressive, especially on the finish. Drink now through 2030. Smart Buys.

Full-bodied & Smooth
CARPINETO CHIANTI CLASSICO 2016
DOCG, Tuscany, Italy
356048 (XD) 750 mL $19.95
TASTING NOTE: Carpineto was founded in 1967 by Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo, two Italian winemakers from outside of Tuscany who dared to dream of making world-class wines in the region they’d fallen in love with. Their modern approach to winemaking helped make Chianti Classico a household name. This is consistently an elegant wine with vibrant cherry and spice character that pairs beautifully with cured meats or steak Florentine.
