FATTORIA CARPINETA FONTALPINO
Carpineta Fontalpino is a farm and winery that belongs to the Cresti family. Traces of wine-making roots in the area date back up to the 19th century, but it was in 1967 that Italo Cresti, Gioia and Filippo’s father, decided to believe in his vocation and turned it into a business, run with love and devotion.
The Farm is located in the heart of Tuscany, near the splendid Siena. Not far from our land, the historic Montaperti hill welcomes us in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, Southern outpost of the Chianti Classico denomination. The land we own extends for about 90 hectares (222 acres) that we cultivate with certified organic practices: we grow vines and “Senatore Cappelli” wheat.
The vineyards cover an area of 30 hectares (74 acres), with parcels specialized in Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon – as well as other selected varietals, such as Petit Verdot and Alicante. Since we are blessed with a strategic position, near the border of different wine areas, we are able to produce both Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG, in addition to our Supertuscan IGT.
