2013 CAPEZZANA CARMIGNANO

A TUSCAN NATIONAL TREASURE!

$19.95 BTL./$102.00 6-PACK

      $35 UPON RELEASE! Even the most astute Tuscan wine lovers might not know about the wines of this small zona. Carmignano was the first DOCG to be able to add cabernet to their Sangiovese & that was over 85 years ago!  CAPEZZANA IS UNRIVALED IN THIS ZONA!  Few wineries in the world possess the stature, respect and devotion that the Contini Bonacossi family has cultivated and maintained over five generations with their Tenuta di Capezzana winery. The estate is located 12 miles west of Florence in the Carmignano sub-zone, one of the oldest recognized wine producing areas in Tuscany. The first reference to Capezzana dates to 804 A.D. An ancient parchment stored at the Florentine state archives shows the granting of a lease of vineyards and olive groves for the cultivation of wine and olive oil to a place called Capezzana. The 2013 Carmignano is simply a mouthful of unflagging gratification, perfectly focused and potent in its expression of berry fruit, vanilla, cedar, and cloves, deep and enveloping in flavor, lusciously ripe and velvety from the attack to the exceptionally long finish, the classic iron fist in a velvet glove. We have more treasures from this estate in our Italian section!
