Carpineto was founded in1967 by Antonio Zaccheoand Giovanni Sacchet and farms 424
hectares of land spread over four estates among Tuscany's most prestigious appellations. The
original aim of the producers - to produce modern, world-class red wine from the Chianti
Classico appellation (a radical departure when most Chianti was still produced in the traditional wine-making style) -has been admirably fulfilled. Pioneers of internationalism
of Tuscany, the Dogajolo is a great example of this ethos of action. Carpineto has been named
IWSC Italian Wine Producer Of The Year in 2003 and was the first ever Italian winery ever to win the IWSC International Winemaker Of The Year Trophy in 1994. Antonio Zaccheo is now aided by his son Antonio and daughter Francesca, who both previously worked in the wine trade in the USA. Giovanni Sacchet's daughter, Caterina,has recently joined the Carpineto winemaking team after finishing her viticulture and oenology degree.
