Capezzana – Villa Capezzana Carmignano DOCG

R485.00

This is the estate’s historic wine and is highly representative of the qualities of Carmignano. D.O.C. status was re-obtained in 1975 and D.O.C.G. in the 1990’s. It is produced from Sangiovese (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). D.O.C.G. wines are matured for over one year in tonneaux and then laid down for a further twelve months in bottles.
Villa di Capezzana embodies the Carmignano land and the history of Capezzana – the family has bottles dating back to the 1925 vintage. The concentrated aromas of dark cherries and cassis perfectly represent the blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Intense ruby red colour with a restrained, elegant nose. Perfumes of anisette, almonds, violets, blood oranges, coffee, a combination of vanilla and wood along with notes of mature Sangiovese. On the palate the body is bold and enticing with structured tannins and balanced acidity. The long finish has an aftertaste of sweet liquorice and coffee.
