Il Carnasciale

Podere Il Carnasciale is situated in the southern Chianti mountains in the Valdarno di Sopra region of Tuscany, thirty kilometers north of Siena and Arezzo and 60 kilometers south of Florence. True to original owner’s (Wolf Rogosky) vision, the secluded hilltop estate is run today by Bettina and her son Moritz Rogosky, in collaboration with the enologists and winemakers Peter Schilling and Marco Maffei. The Caberlot variety—a naturally occurring crossing of Merlot and Cabernet France—is cultivated exclusively at Podere Il Carnasciale, making them a self-proclaimed “haute couture” winery. The variety Caberlot was first identified in the late 1960's in an abandoned vineyard near Padua by the agronomist Dr. Remigio Bordini. It was discovered to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Extreme care and craft go into detail, precision, and quality, in both their vineyard and cellar work. Their work in the vineyards is carried out entirely by hand, with the utmost respect for the soil and the vines. Pruning, budding, and leaf management are all done manually, without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides.
