$33.00 $33.00

Carmignano is one of Tuscany’s oldest and finest wine regions, producing wines for over 3000 years. In 1716, the Grand Duke of Tuscany issued a proclamation protecting Carmignano’s wines by prohibiting the use of its name outside of the region, evincing their distinction. Owned by the fourth and fifth generation of the Contini Bonacossi family, Tenuta di Capezzana is one of the oldest wineries in Tuscany, making wines since 804 A.D.

The first vintage of Villa di Capezzana dates back to 1925 and is the estate’s flagship wine, representing the region’s historical importance and centuries of quality winemaking. 2016 was an excellent vintage in Tuscany, and the Sangiovese-based blend quintessentially portrays the expression of Carmignano terroir that has been prized and protected for ages.

Description

2016 CAPEZZANA VILLA DI CAPEZZANA CARMIGNANO

…This wine, crimson and dark, is full of concentration and extract without losing grace. Fresh bramble fruits dominated by raspberry are joined by violet, leafy notes and liquorice. The tannins are grainy and masculine, yet precise on the finish. Refreshing and balanced, this is the wine representative of the estate’s postmodern winemaking: the first to be officially organic and partially aged in large oak vessels. A great Carmignano.

“Made with organic fruit, the 2016 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana is an 80/20 blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is open and accessible, showing a graceful and pure quality of fruit with dark cherry, blackberry, spice, tar and tobacco. The mouthfeel is streamlined and compact, but what this wine lacks in power it makes up for in elegance…”
