Wine of the Week - Carpineto Dogajolo Rosso 2020

by Greg Larsen

Recently, we have been taking a closer look at some of wines that are priced at $15 or below, you can check out past post in this series of 'Wine of the Week' to see what we have been drinking, what we have been thinking, and where you get yours to start drinking. 

We're excited to showcase the Carpineto Dogajolo Rosso 2022 this week! This red wine has a fruity aroma, which is expected for its age. However, what's surprising is the dark red color despite being a youthful wine.  Made up of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied and round wine is easy to drink and definitely worth its price. We highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try a delicious red wine.

 

 

Carpineto's Dogajolo is a line of wines that serves as the producer's entry-level tier. The name comes from the Italian word "doga," which refers to the thin strips of wood used to create casks. The Dogajolo Rosso 2022, in particular, is a delightful red wine that boasts a fruity aroma and a rich, dark red color despite being a youthful wine.

 

We cracked the Carpineto's Dogajolo open on a Saturday night after a long day at the pool and paired it with a Lasagna. It had a really fruity aroma and I can totally smell hints of cherry, coffee, vanilla, and spice, but it wasn't overwhelmingly fragrant, that could be a combination of the age of the wine and the fact that I only set the wine sit for 45-Minutes before drinking. 

 

Greg's Review: From my prospective, it's perfect for everyday drinking and is really versatile when it comes to pairing it with food. I'd recommend trying it with some antipasti platters, grilled white meats, or tomato-based pasta dishes.  Overall, it's a great value for its price and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious red wine.  You can check it out via Binny's or you can check out our selection of Red wines from the Drink With Greg Web Store
