Il Carpino


Ana Sosol

REGION: Fruili

Situated in the picturesque commune of San Floriano del Collio, the seventeen-hectare Azienda Agricola Il Carpino estate is the home of more than 10,000 vines - some that are thirty years old or more. Each grape variety is carefully grown in the vineyards that are located on the border of Italy and Slovenia. In 1970, Silvio Sosol cultivated a few hectares of vineyards. It was only in 1987 that he put his name on the labels. 

Further parcels of land were acquired as the years went by and today Throughout the years, parcels of land were purchased, and currently, fourteen of the seventeen hectares are owned by the family that is now run by Silvio’s son-in-law. The grapes are transformed into premium wines that reflect the idyllic area. 

The estate’s family-style operation allows all its artisans to monitor every phase of cultivation and the vinification process, as well as the commerce of finished products. The winemakers here also consider themselves interpreters of the terroir and distillers of its elements; more than simple custodians of the fruit and subsequent drink. They are storytellers of the territory – tellers of tales meant to be heard all over the world.

Wine Region:


Located between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, the mountains at Friuli’s north and east aids in its grapes’ full fruition – ripening just before peak sugar level in a relatively moderate terroir. The non-traditional grape varietals used here help creap vibrant and crisp wines, as does the topography: mountainous goes to flat plains and then, the warm days and cool nights afforded by the area’s proximity to the sea.

The marlstone and sandstone of the hills to the clay, gravel, and sand of the valley of the terraces upon which the vines are grown produce a wide range of wines: light but distinctive white wines all the way to full-bodied, still fruity wines both red and white. Among them are the delicate and smooth international Merlots, as well as sharp Tazzelenghes and Schiopettinos – local, brusque, and memorable.
