Additional Wine Information

Story
Brothers Claudio and Giancarlo Stefanoni helm this third-generation estate near Lake Garda. The massive mountain-rimmed lake creates a microclimate that’s more temperate than the rest of this northern region. The Garda wine district was created in 2005 to recognize highquality wines made from a single grape variety, in a region where most wines were traditionally composed of blends. The Stefanoni family has been growing French varietals such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon for decades, in addition to native grapes, and are part of a small cadre of producers bringing international attention to Garda. Painstakingly handcrafted, the Carpino Merlot is made from select bunches of grapes that are harvested by hand and put aside to dry out in small boxes for 20 to 30 days before being crushed. The technique concentrates the grapes’ flavors and sugars and gives this red its luscious depth.
Sense
Vanilla, herb and baking spice scents accent black cherry and plum jam aromas.
Savor
This wine offers black plum, balsamic and herb flavors, velvety tannins and a silky texture, finishing long and pure.
Serve
Pair this plush Merlot with braised or stewed meat dishes that offer a satiny texture and concentrated depth of flavor to stand up to the wine’s structure. White and red meat dishes will both work well, given the Carpino’s refined tannins. We love it with savory herb-flecked fare such as Balsamic Quick-Braised Pork Chops; Braised Duck with Figs and Pork; and Moroccan Lamb Stew (recipes at williams-sonoma.com).
Serving Instructions
Decant and serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the decanted wine for 10 minutes before serving.
