Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon
The name Farnito is derived from a type of oak tree known as “Farna” found in the vicinity of the vineyards. Carpineto Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon is produced with grapes from the winery’s Gaville and Chianciano/Montepulciano estates. The grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately in stainless steel and blended together to age in oak. The wine is then bottle aged. This full-bodied wine boasts complex aromas of spices, licorice, vanilla and cherry and has persistent, elegant tannins on the finish. Enjoy this limited-production wine with roast and game, particularly lamb.

This pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from sunny Tuscany has done a good job of holding up to the heat of the vintage. The wine shows ripe aromas of blackberry, chocolate and spice but does not taste jammy or cooked. In fact, it strikes a very good balance between fruit and firmness. -M. Larner, May [...]
Lean and tight, this tannic red exhibits earthy cherry, herb and tobacco notes. A solid wine, if not that generous. Best from 2012 through 2018. 10,000 cases made. -B. Sanderson, July 2011
Black currant, cherry, cedar and tobacco notes are married to a dense, muscular structure. This red offers freshness, with a chewy texture on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025. 666 cases made. -B. Sanderson, September 2012
