The Sangiovese grapes come from vineyards under long term lease in the upper Valdarno region where organic agriculture is practised. No synthetic chemicals or herbicides are used. Only natural organic fertilisers are added to the stony soils.

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled vats with medium length maceration. After the final blend was assembled, the wine was aged for a minimum of six months in oak casks and then was left to rest in tank before being bottled. Bottling took place during the second year following the vintage and the wine has benefitted from four to six months' bottle ageing prior to release.

Carpineto holds the VIVA certification for sustainability, and is accredited ISO 14001 and IFS. Formerly IWSC Italian Wine Producer of the Year, Carpineto was also the first ever Italian winery to be awarded the IWSC International Winemaker of the Year. Antonio Zaccheo is now assisted by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who have both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet's daughter, Caterina, joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree. Carpineto produces exquisite wines with elegant typicity.
