The Capezzana estate dates back to the 12th Century, and lies in the Carmignano region of Tuscany, west of Florence; a region that has been producing wine since the Etruscan days. Capezzana produces a beautiful, ruby-red Carmignano (80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) a wine that is typically higher in acidity and greater in aroma than a Chianti Classico. The wine is matured for over a year in French tonneaux and another in the bottle. It has soft tannins, well balanced acidity, and a long, smooth finish. A terrific wine; something different for Chianti-lovers.
