2017 CAPEZZANA VILLA DI CAPEZZANA CARMIGNANO

$33.00 $33.00

Tenuta di Capezzana is one of Tuscany’s oldest wineries, producing wine for over 1200 years, representing one of the first creators of Super Tuscan wines after bringing in Cabernet Sauvignon cuttings from Lafite Rothschild. The estate’s current owners are the fourth and fifth generation of the Bonacossi family, who obtained the property in 1920, producing their flagship wine, Villa di Cappezzana since 1925.

The blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic style similar to that of the legendary Tignanello, reminiscent of a sumptuous Left Bank Bordeaux with the rustic character of a Chianti Classico. This elegantly powerful wine scored 93 points from Decanter, offering substantial value considering the Carmignano DOC’s extensive winemaking history and prized terroir.

2017 CAPEZZANA VILLA DI CAPEZZANA CARMIGNANO

"The 2017 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana takes its time opening in the glass, at first dusty with dried cherries and only a hint of dusty rose. Yet this is worth the wait, as its berry fruit transforms into crushed plums and raspberries, complemented by sweet herbs, hints of animal musk and flowery undergrowth. It washes dark elegant waves of mineral-tinged blackberries across the palate, offset by a twang of sour citrus, as hints of cocoa and tobacco build toward the close. This is structured and noble in feel, yet with enough primary concentration to nearly mask its grippy tannins, as touches of mint and dark chocolate linger through the medium-length finale. The balance that Capezzana has culled from this torridly hot and dry vintage is remarkable. That said, the 2017 is already drinking beautifully today after a good decant. This is a blend of 80% Sangiovese to 20% Cabernet Sauvignon."

...Aged partially in large oak, this organic Carmignano - a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon - shines for its richness of fruit with ripe cherry and cassis, clove and carrube spices, then officinal herbs in depth. Broad and powerful, extracted yet crunchy, it shows a fresh yet not overt acidity, with a glycerol-rich texture and a great saline finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2035."
