More about this Producer
The surrounding territory is rich in history, legends and love that are experienced by all those who are fortunate enough to visit it. Its unforgettable atmosphere creates strong emotions. The Cresti Family has the honor and privilege to live there. They strive to maintain the unaltered countryside and keep its traditions intact. They are proud to be part of such a generous area, which never ceases to surprise Them. Gioia Cresti is the vineyard’s oenologist and she is responsible for all the production phases, from the wine making to the aging. She picks out the best grapes so that the whole wine production is imprinted on her own personal style. Filippo Cresti is mainly involved in the organizational activities. He is also the commercial and marketing development mind of Carpineta Fontalpino Estates.
The Cresti Family have been proprietors of Carpineta Fontalpino Vineyard since the 1960’s and traces of the wine making traditions date as far back as the past century. The name Carpineta Fontalpino has never changed. It has its roots in two historical places of the area of Montaperti. Carpineta is a site where trees with silver back leaves called “Carpini” grow, and Fontalpino is the water source with a back drop of the pine trees of Montaperti – two noteworthy places of this important medieval historical site. The vineyard is located in the middle of Tuscany, very close to the splendid town of Siena.
