The Cresti family founded Carpineta Fontalpino in the 1960s, though the estate has been used for winemaking since early the 1900s. The founder’s name was Italo Cresti.

The winery takes its name from the surrounding area of Montaperti. The name Carpineta is taken from trees call Carpini, which are indigenous to the area and are easy to recognize by their silver-backed leaves. The name Fontalpino comes from a water source near the winery. Today the founder’s children, Gioia and Filippo consider it an honor to live here.

Today the brother and sister team manage the estate with Filippo in charge of sales and marketing while Gioia is the enologist and agronomist, in charge of every phase of production, from the vinification to the aging. The vineyards are certified organic and the winemaking is natural in principle, with a clean, modern polish.
