In their own words
Carpineta Fontalpino is a winery and farm located in the heart of Tuscany, near the splendid town of Siena. Not far from the winery’s land, the historic Montaperti hill welcomes us in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, southern outpost of the Chianti Classico denomination. The land we own extends for about 90 hectares (222 acres) that we cultivate with certified organic practices: we grow vines and “Senatore Cappelli” wheat.
The vineyards cover an area of 30 hectares (74 acres), with parcels specialized in Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon – as well as other selected varietals, such as Petit Verdot and Alicante. Since we are blessed with a strategic position, near the border of different wine areas, we are able to produce both Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG, in addition to our Supertuscan IGT.
The winery has been in the hands of the Cresti family since the 1960s. Traces of wine-making roots in the area date back up to the 19th century, but it was in 1967 that Italo Cresti, Gioia and Filippo’s father, decided to follow his vocation and turn it into a business, run with love and devotion. Nowadays, Gioia is the enologist of the winery, she takes care of all the aspects of wine-making, from harvest to maturation. She makes the most important choices, and you can find her personal touch on every phase of production. Her brother Filippo manages sales, communication and marketing.
