Carpineto Dogajolo Rosso Toscana 2021

DRC21

New product

An innovative baby Super-Tuscan, Dogajolo combines the power and deep flavours of a young wine, with the elegance and balance from the oak ageing. Full bodied, yet soft on the palate with fruity cherry notes interlaced with coffee, vanilla and spice, this is complex and well-developed.

More info

Carpineto farms 500 hectares of land, including 200 hectares of woods, sustainably. Indeed, their woods and vineyards absorb 26% more carbon dioxide than they produce. Extreme attention is paid to the preservation of the biodiversity of the vineyards. The family adopts modern agricultural methods on both the vines and the soils, and eco-friendly products are applied conscientiously. The vines are grown in the heart of Tuscany in their estate vineyards in sand, clay and limestone soils, which produce elegant wines.

Whole bunches were carefully selected at harvest. The grape varieties were vinified separately, as they reached maturity at different times. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at 25°C, followed by 15 to 20 days maceration with frequent aerations, pump overs and punch-downs of the cap for optimal polyphenol extraction. Towards the end of fermentation they were blended and placed in small wooden casks where they slowly completed alcoholic and malolactic conversion.
