An elegant, classy wine with from 100% Sangiovese with amazing complexity and smooth texture. Only 789 bottles were made.
Deep ruby red with purplish reflections.
The bouquet jumps out of the glass and shows toast, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, red fruits. Long and persistent with intensity, develops slowly into moss, brushwood, iris, juniper and a little of wild fennel.
It is a little astringent, warm, structured, fresh, glucid tannins. A taste of iris, undergrown, musk mixed with vanilla.
Best allowed to breathe a good 20 minutes and enjoyed in large, tulip-shaped glasses.
Food pairings: Game, roast, stewed and braised meat.
Capannelle's first vintage in 1975 saw them producing wines that propelled them into a justly deserved place on the list of Chianti's best producers. The philosophy underlying production involves careful selection of clones, restricting yields, the utilisation of modern approaches both to cultivation and in the cellar, the use of new oak and close attention to every detail (from hygiene to materials of every type).
