20% Cabernet Sauvignon

80% Sangiovese


Tuscany, Italy



The name Dogajolo was invented by Carpineto’s founders, derived from the Italian word doga, meaning “stave” — the narrow strips of wood used to form oak casks. A young wine that boasts fruity aromas with hints of cherry interlaced with coffee, vanilla, and spice. Each varietal is vinified separately in stainless steel in this Sangiovese-based baby Super Tuscan. The blend is briefly aged in oak rendering a medium-bodied red that is soft on the palate with a balanced acidity. Suitable for everyday consumption, Dogajolo is best within a few years of the vintage.

A mix of 70% Sangiovese and other international red grapes, this would pair well with pizza or pasta with meat ragu. It shows flavors of cherry, forest berry, cola, almond and a touch of mild tobacco.
