Carpineto takes its name from the Greek - Carpos, meaning fruit. The modern day winery was founded in 1967. Since then, the partnership between cofounders Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo has developed an award winning, international reputation for consistently elegant wines with unmatched intensity and extract. The four Carpineto estates encompass 424 hectares of land spread among Tuscany's most prestigious appellations. From the heart of the Chianti Classico region to their extensive Vino Nobile holdings in Montepulciano, Carpineto has garnered a strong global following fueled by their unique combination of traditional and innovative winemaking. Carpineto was the first Italian winery to receive the Robert Mondavi Trophy for excellence and has been nominated Best Italian Wine Producer at the 34th International Wine and Spirits Competition.
