Winemaker Notes

Elegant, with notes of red and dark fruit with spicy aromas. Well structured, with rich, concentrated flavors of currant and wild berries set against a backdrop of silky tannins. Outstanding served with roasted or grilled red meat, lamb, polenta, mushroom risotto and semi-hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Soft and silky with chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. Medium body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Always a beauty. Drink or hold.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Starts out beefy, with iron, leather and underbrush aromas, picking up cherry and plum notes on the palate. Dense, dusty tannins line the finish, but this has complexity and persistence. Drink now through 2023.

Capezzana, Carmignano, Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery
Grapevines were already cultivated for wine production in the vicinity of Capezzana 3000 years ago. The present vineyard was named in Roman times, and written records of the present vineyard date to 932 A.D. During the Renaissance, the property was controlled by the Medici family. The estate passed by marriage through several noble Tuscan families, until it came under the control of the Contini Bonacossi family early in the 20th century. Today the property is run by the Bonacossi family – Filippo runs the vineyards, Bernadetta makes the wine, and Beatrice handles commercial matters.

All of the grapes for the wines of Capezzana are produced on their estate vineyards. Filippo supervises their production with the utmost in care, using the minimum possible amount of chemical inputs to ensure the health of the vines. Great attention is paid to the size and density of the canopy and to the fruit load borne by each vine.

Carmignano

View all wine

With recorded history of red wine production since the Middle Ages, Carmignano is a small, ancient, central Italian subregion ten miles northwest of Florence. Carmignano grows Sangiovese with great success in low-lying hills of 160 to 650 feet above sea level.

It is the only Tuscan DOC that required the inclusion of (up to 20%) Cabernet Sauvignon in its Sangiovese-based wines years before it became popular in the Super Tuscan blends.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
