Capezzana – Barco Reale Carmignano

Toscana / Tuscany


59 in stock

This wine is made from traditional Carmignano grapes (Sangiovese, Cabernet, Canaiolo) produced by the Conti Contini Bonacossi at Capezzana, in Carmignano. The vines grow in the ancient Medici estate, the “Barco Reale” or “Royal property” mentioned in Cosimo de Medici’s “Decreto Motu Proprio” in 1716. With this decrete, which is the pride of Tuscany Grand Duke Cosimo III set Italy’s first laws establishing boundaries and production standards for quality wines. It shows a wonderful aroma of black cherry, blackberry, plum, spice and lots of succulent dried herbs. Tasty, smooth and rustic wine featuring similar flavors to the nose with lots of sour juicy fruit, a little smoked meat and lots more dried herbs. Soft tannins lead into the really dry, really long finish that highlights more sour dark fruit, herbs and a touch of oak.
