A typical example of a pure Sangiovese, red with purple reflections, with interesting aromas of plum, cherry, and currant. It is persistent, pleasing and versatile with great balance and finish.
Pair with salami, cold cuts and Pecorino cheese.
The Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino 2018 Chianti Classico Fontalpino (made with organic fruit) is a special wine with a hint of raspberry or candied orange peel that is specific to this bottle from Castelnuovo Berardenga. This is one of the most Pinot Noir-oriented Sangiovese wines I have tasted from this slightly warmer Chianti Classico subregion. The wine is delicate, polished and perfect for a pork loin roast with onions and potatoes. Nice job.
