CARPINETO opens to the public every day its most emblematic estate and where the Nobile is produced, the iconic wine present at OPERA WINE on Saturday 19th

the place of the heart for wine lovers! CARPINETO Grandi Vini di Toscana from June opens the Appodiato di Montepulciano to the public and to wine tourism. Walks, visits, tastings and picnics in the largest and most fascinating estate of the company.

A green oasis powered solely by solar energy in the most beautiful Tuscany.

A wine retreat of 184 hectares of land dedicated to vineyards, olive groves and woods, an ideal environment for the game that populates it in its natural state. An oasis of nature and the environment in the name of sustainability.

A small, great family story, or rather of families, over three generations, told through wines that remain in the memory for a long time and arouse emotions.

It is here that from the beginning of June you will enjoy a new experience by booking two hours of full immersion in nature , in close contact with those who make, produce, great wines. You climb "high" on a tower / cistern for a glimpse of the vineyards from above and instagrammable landscapes, you walk among the vineyards, you enter the cellar, you taste, have a snack on the lawn and maybe even greedy shopping. On the other hand, those who love tasting one or more wines by the glass or uncorking a bottle with friends, can do so independently while enjoying a unique environment.

The estate is accessed along a long (over a kilometer) dirt road flanked by two dense rows of centuries-old cypresses, vineyards as far as the eye can see on the right as well as on the left.

The gentle slope of the hills allows a view so wide that you can first see the ancient eighteenth-century buildings facing the new cellar of contemporary architecture , glimpse beyond the vineyards the small lake nature reserve surrounded by meadows and poplars , and to the right, after a slight ups and downs and the oak forest with natural truffle , the ancient olive grove . In short, a sometimes pastoral scenario .

In the background dominates the majestic mass of Monte Cetona and beyond the Amiata, behind which the majestic sun descends. A dream to walk through the vineyards and taste at sunset .

If traveled on foot, strolling, the access road already offers splendid views over the entire valley with vineyards, an intact nature of a beauty as simple as it is absolute.

Harmony and essential composition kept in mind by Giovanni Carlo Sacchet , founder with Antonio Mario Zaccheo , over 50 years ago of Carpineto , in designing in 2010 the very modern and technological winemaking and aging cellar built according to eco-compatibility criteria, with green building materials; a cellar that thanks to a system of solar panels produces green energy to a greater extent than needs.

In total 4,500 square meters divided into three rooms : one for the strictly productive area and the winemaking, one with the rooms for the elevation in wood in barrels and one for the reception with the tasting area in an elevated open space overlooking the cooper.

The large windows in the lounge that welcomes guests, and gives access to the small company museum of agricultural tools from over a century ago , offer lots of natural light and continuous breath with the surrounding landscape.

"We practice precision agriculture with latest generation machines and technologies with very low environmental impact that allows us to carry out treatments exclusively as needed and targeted, to safeguard biodiversity - explains Antonio Michael Zaccheo - just as exemplary is our behavior with respect to the footprint of carbon since vineyards and woods absorb much more CO2 than is produced ".

"We do not make any use of additives, adjuvants of animal origin and stabilizers, this, together with the choice to lighten more and more the weight of the bottles, putting in the first place a sense of responsibility towards the environment with the aim of giving life to a virtuous cycle and fully sustainable and ethical wines "- says Caterina Sacchet , second generation winemaker and producer with Antonio Zaccheo Jr.

In short, an oasis of nature and the environment in the name of sustainability .

The estate is above all the beating heart of the Nobile production, for which the company represents one of the reference points for the denomination. Here Carpineto produces the Vino Nobile Riserva DOCG , the only Tuscan company to produce it only in the Riserva version, an award-winning wine for three years in the top 100 ranking of the best wines in the world by Wine Spectator .

The Cru di Nobile Vigneto Poggio Sant'Enrico Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG , pure Sangiovese , has also been awarded many awards.

In this Appodiato, from individual vineyards, the company also obtains 4 Crus , produced only in vintages considered exceptional: they are the Vigne degli Appodiati , with extraordinary characteristics that enhance the peculiarities of each single micro-zone. Bottled without undergoing any treatment, they are released from the cellar no earlier than at least five years of bottle aging. Real icons capable of evolving for a long time.

The city of the Noble, Montepulciano is only a few kilometers away, regal and elegant it can be seen on the hill. Even closer to the estate, the historic center of Chianciano Terme , an ancient village surrounded by walls, little known to most and worth a visit, as well as the Archaeological Museum with the section dedicated to wine in the Etruscan age . Not to be missed!

After the Wine Tour with tasting , there is no need to get back in the car to reach the village, those who love walking, or maybe pedaling, can get there directly from the estate along dirt roads and country paths. You walk while observing rows of vines softened by rose bushes and the words of Luigi Veronelli still come back to mind, "to understand a wine you have to walk the vineyards".
