Carpineto was co-founded in 1967 by wine visionaries, Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo. The pair set out to produce a world-class red wine from Chianti Classico. The duo quickly developed an international, awardwinning reputation for consistently elegant wines by adopting modern viticulture and winemaking techniques to create wines that dramatically exceeded the quality standards of the time.
