Variety: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon
Carmignano is an Italian wine region located in the Tuscany region and centered on the city of Carmignano, about 10 miles northwest of Florence. In the 18th century, the producers of the Carmignano region developed a tradition of blending Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, long before the practice became popularized by the "Super Tuscan" of the late 20th century. The Pierazzuoli Family has had the Farnete estate since 1990. The property is located in the town of Carmignano near the town of Firenze. The family operates another property in Carmignano, as well as overseeing an osteria, farmhouse, and their own olive oil production. Their wines continue to win multiple Gambero Rosso ratings.
This wine took its name from the 2 meters high and 52 Km long wall surrounding (Barco Reale) that the Medici had raised in 1626 to delimit the area and one can say that this has been the first natural reserve of Italy. The Sangiovese & Cabernet are fermented in stainless steel then assembled together for release the following Autumn.
