International friendship day: three wines to gift and to share

Wine and friendship. Such a natural pairing that it is superfluous to explain why. A glass is even better (and tastier) if it is accompanied by a friend’s one. During an aperitif, a lunch, a dinner, a toast to celebrate a special day or simply for the pure pleasure of drinking a good wine. Here we are: in celebration of International Friendship Day, what better idea than giving a special bottle to a dear friend? Let us start with some advice.

Carpineto Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva

Starting off immediately with the top of the range. The Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the most precious jewels of Tuscan wine making. In our Vino Nobile estate, we produce exclusively the Riserva version, thus giving you such a prestigious bottle without any compromise on taste and aroma. Made with the Prugnolo Gentile variety of Sangiovese grapes, smaller percentages of Canaiolo and other authorised varieties, our Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva can be summed up in one word: elegance.

A balanced wine from its early years after bottling, to the nose, it retains a strong aroma of red fruit and sweet violet, then continuing towards spicy and toasted ones of vanilla, cocoa and leather. A persistent and fine wine, ideal for a dinner amongst friends who want to share the experience of an uncommon wine. Basically: if you want a bottle that will make a good impression at the table and surprise your dining companions, this is as far as you have to look.

Carpineto Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

Chianti Classico is one of the most famous vine growing and wine making areas in the world. The name itself immediately evokes endless vineyards perched on the hills of the green heart of Tuscany, between the provinces of Siena and Florence. The Carpineto Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is the latest addition to our family of Chianti Classico wines. In this case too: no compromise on quality.

Our Gran Selezione is made with 5 star vintages alone, from rigorously hand-picked grapes put into special crates that preserve their integrity. The result is a wine of great quality and imposing structure with a refined and elegant bouquet: wild berry, vanilla, cocoa and spices contend for space and open themselves as the evolutionary path continues over time. A wine that is, indeed, ready for a long lifetime, as it has that beautiful acidity that guarantees an interesting evolution. A wine for special evenings with special people, to share at the table with long-standing friends.

 Carpineto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015

We say it without any desire of self-praise. But if it is possible to imagine something that goes beyond top quality, our Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 is the concrete expression of it. A bottle produced in respect of what this corner of Tuscany gifted us in its immense generosity. On the rocky land of Montalcino, in one of the highest territories of the whole denomination, a wine has been created that is the exemplification of the concept of excellence.

An olfactory bouquet of a unique persistence, capable of ranging from jam to toasted aromas, from spices to underwood. Forerunner to a full, smooth, warm, elegant taste from an early age but even more interesting if left to mature calmly, with no rush, over the course of the years. The Carpineto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 is for those who want to share with friends something that goes beyond the simple interest towards wine. A collective experience to remember in the years to come.

Three wines for three different but just as unforgettable experiences. Just a small but significant view of the broad world of Carpineto. To be discovered and to be shared with persons dear to you to celebrate your friendship.
