    Perfect with hard cheeses, pizza, pasta dishes or grilled meats.

    Caposaldo, Italy
    Caposaldo  Winery Image
    Caposaldo was created in honor of the Roman Empire’s most famous racing horse of the Circus Maximus. Competing for an astounding 24 years and winning 1,500 of his over 4,000 races this horse gained the favor of Emperor Nero, who anointed the horse “Caposaldo”. In today’s modern world the classic icon of the horse still resonates as a symbol of superior achievement and quality. Standing as a benchmark of classic Italian wines from select regions of Italy, Caposaldo blends the best of a family / hand crafted artisanal approach to wine making with modern quality standards and techniques.

    The Caposaldo product line includes a handcrafted Pinot Grigio and Chianti, as well as a Prosecco; all are reference points of Italian wine and values you can count on. Caposaldo; the Modern Italian Classic.

    Famous for its food-friendly, approachable wines and their storied history, Chianti is perhaps the best-known wine region of Italy. This appellation within Tuscany has it all: sweeping views of rolling hills, endless vineyards, the warm Mediterranean sun, hearty cuisine and a rich artistic heritage. Chianti includes seven subzones: Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Rufina, Montalbano, Colli Senesi, Colline Pisane, Colli Aretini and Montespertoli, with area beyond whose wines can be labeled simply as Chianti.

    However the best quality comes from Chianti Classico, in the heart of the Chianti zone, which is no longer a subzone of the region at all but has been recognized on its own since 1996. The Classico region today is delimited by the confines of the original Chianti zone protected since the 1700s.

    Chianti wines are made primarily of Sangiovese, with other varieties comprising up to 25-30% of the blend. Generally, local varieties are used, including Canaiolo, Colorino and Mammolo, but international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are allowed as long as they are grown within the same zone.

    Basic, value-driven Chianti is simple and fruit-forward and makes a great companion to any casual dinner. At its apex, Chianti is full bodied but with good acidity, firm tannins, and notes of tart red fruit, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic and tobacco. Chianti Riserva, typically the top bottling of a producer, can benefit handsomely from a decade or two of cellaring.
