A tightly wound, black cherry- and tobacco-laced red, with a rich texture and dense tannins that linger on the finish. Has length and character. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2015 through 2022. 66,665 cases made.-BS
 Wine Enthusiast 87 points (Apr 2013)
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.

Wine maker notes
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.

Technical notes
70% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food pairing
given its fruitiness, Dogajolo can be paired with first courses and white meats, but shows at its best with full-flavored dishes such as roasts, grilled meats, cold cuts and Tuscan regional specialties.
