Carpineto Dogajolo 2016
The 2016 Dogajolo is a 70-30 blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon (with some other red grapes mixed in as well). This well-priced red offers a tight and streamlined style that makes it perfect to pair with pasta topped with extra grated Parmigiano cheese. This is a mid-weight wine with simple and stripped-down appeal. Bottle production is huge at 800,000 units made.
