In 1967, Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo set out to revolutionize wine and produce a Chianti Classico so prestigious that it would gain international renown. These two wine fanatics saw an enormous potential that was not being used in Tuscan soil. They understood that applying cutting-edge technology and pushing the standard of quality even further, would create the ultimate of wines. And they did just that. Giovanni and Antonio made the Carpineto wine brand into an international success, which is currently exported to over 70 countries worldwide. The intensity, integrity and consistency of their wine have earned them a solid reputation among consumers and critics alike. Carpineto wines, especially the aged reds, have received numerous awards and accolades.
