Carpineto (Tuscany), Dogajolo 1996
A "super Tuscan" at a bargain price, this is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Sangiovese from within the Chianti region. Dark, dense, ruby colour. Herbal nose of tobacco and red fruits with an overlay of sweet vanilla. Punchy strawberry and raspberry fruit on the palate, bright and forward, hints of toffee richness. Noticeable tannins and citrus acidity in the finish. Very nice. (10/98).
