Vineyards as far as the eye can see, in places where nature imposes itself overwhelmingly, offering unforgettable landscapes. A real Tuscan wine tour is the one that borders the Carpineto estates, an icon in the world of the great red wines of the region. And to be involved in this wine trekking are the territories of the most important denominations: Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico. It starts from Montepulciano perched on the top of a hill in the heart of the Valdichiana. The Tenuta di Montepulciano is a real oasis of nature and environment dedicated to sustainability, with vineyards and woods that absorb much more CO2 than Carpineto produces. A wine retreat of 184 hectares with a lake, woods, olive groves and vineyards as far as the eye can see. Here has just been completed the new cellar in the colors of the earth, distanced from the ancient eighteenth-century complex. Inside, a small museum of ancient agricultural tools, a splendid tasting room where you can do guided tastings (currently for groups and by reservation) ranging between the various vintages and a wine shop where you can buy wines directly on the farm. It is in this estate that Carpineto produces the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Docg: the only Tuscan company to produce it in the Reserve version only, for three years in a row the only Noble in the Top 100 in the world of Wine Spectator. The next day the Val d’Orcia awaits us, a blaze of well-preserved nature and duet with villages, parish churches, towers in an up and down of gullies and hills until we reach Montalcino, famous for a mulled wine such as Brunello. The Carpineto Tenuta di Montalcino

is 500 meters above sea level, one of the highest and most scenic settlements in the appellation, with a view that spans the historic center of the village and frames the entire perimeter of the walls. The light exposure to the north, in a panoramic and ventilated position, gives the wines a unique microclimate that gives this Brunello intense and complex aromas, a beautiful freshness, elegance, and great longevity. The ancient stone farmhouses house the aging cellar. We continue our journey directly into the Chianti Classico, where wine is once again at its maximum expressions. In the Tenuta di Dudda in Greve, the historical heart of the Carpineto company, in 1967 Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo started the business with the dream and the goal of making the best Chianti. Here it is possible to organize guided tours with tours of the wine-making and aging areas, as well as being able to walk among the vineyards surrounding the farm. The tour concludes with a tasting of the 5 top wines: Dogajolo, Chianti Classico, Chianti ClassicoRiserva, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva and Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon. Finally we move to the upper Maremma for the Tenuta di Gavorrano, with its 165 hectares of land including a large area of ​​Mediterranean woodland with a splendid cork grove where over thirty grazing animals of Cinta Senese pigs graze. The vineyards instead extend into an area facing the sea that gives the wines the intense Mediterranean that also distinguishes the last born, Farnito Valcolomba, a pure Merlot with which to end the tour of the best Tuscan wine by Carpineto.
