Winemaker's Notes

The Capezzana estate, 24 km north west of Florence, is owned by the Conti Contini Bonacossi family, and all seven children work in the business. The younger generation is now firmly in charge of the estate, with daughter Benedetta Contini Bonacossi as winemaker. The highly talented Stefano Chioccioli, a protégé of the well-known peripatetic winemaker Vittorio Fiore, is the estate’s wine consultant. Barco Reale was the biggest property belonging to the Medici Grand Dukes and it encompassed the Capezzana estate. The property was surrounded by a wall 50 km long and two metres high. In 1716 read more...the then Grand Duke Cosimo III de’ Medici, issued a decree (Decretu motu Proprio) which effectively established the first delineated and protected areas in the zone. This red blend is deep purple in colour with ruby shades. It has an attractive nose of ripe red fruit with well integrated French oak, giving the wine a spicy depth. On the palate, it has lovely balance between lively, red fruit character and smooth, spicy tannins. (hide)
