Carpineto was founded in 1967 in the small town of Dudda, within the municipality of Greve in Chianti, by the Sacchet and Zaccheo families, who still run it today. Carpineto cultivates in a sustainable and carbon-neutral way 500 hectares of estate land divided among 5 estates in the historic areas of Tuscany: Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Alto Valdarno and Maremma.

Carpineto and sustainability

On an area of more than 500 hectares of land (200 hectares in forest) on which we cultivate more than 500 km of rows with a vast leaf area, Carpineto adopts sustainable precision agriculture with state-of-the-art technology. We produce and use renewable energy from a photovoltaic panel system of more than 150 kW. This is why Carpineto is prodigiously carbon footprint positive, absorbing 26 percent more CO2 released into the atmosphere from any production process traceable to us.

VIVA Certification

As an attestation of improved supply chain management and performance, we obtained VIVA certification in 2022 by joining the project "The Sustainability of Winegrowing in Italy."

To achieve these objectives we follow our very own strict production code:

-Extreme attention to the preservation of our biodiversity.

-Rationalisation and timeliness in grape harvesting operations to ensure their maximum quality and health.

-Daily monitoring of temperatures and analytical data of musts and wines during fermentation.

-Use of selected natural yeasts to ensure fermentation processes free from the production of harmful substances such as endogenous amines.


Maceration of the skins of medium duration and fermentation under controlled temperature conditions.

Placed in oak barrels of various sizes and origins (Slavonian and French) for one year or more, the wine is then briefly transferred back into stainless steel tanks before bottling.

After bottling the wine is aged in our temperature-controlled cellars.
