Winemaker's Notes

Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico has excellent complexity and structure. The colour is red with hints of violet, the aroma intense and rich in fruity, vinous notes. The fruity overtones of cherries are very pleasant; the freshness is especially enjoyable and balanced with hints of lively tannins, perfectly integrated with the wine's extractive components.

Critical Acclaim

"A racy style, vibrant and silky, evoking raspberry, strawberry and cherry flavors. Backed by lively tannins, with everything in the right proportion. Best from 2013 through 2022. 10,000 cases made. "
