Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino

Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino

The Carpineta Fontalpino winery has been owned by the Cresti family since the 1960s, and you can find traces of wine production that date back to the early 1800s. The vineyard is located in the heart of Tuscany, very close to the splendid city of Siena and the historical municipal of Castelnuovo Berarenga. The owners are brother and sister Gioia and Filippo Cresti and are assisted by a faithful team, some of whom have been working with them for more than 40 years. Gioia is the vineyard's oenologist and is responsible for the wine making and bestows to the whole production her own personal style. Their premium bottle "Do ut des" has been awarded the "Tre Bicchieri" rating by Gambero Rosso, 94 points by Wine Spectator and has been named one of Italy's 50 greatest wines ever by Decanter magazine
