Product description

The Villa di Capezzana perfectly embodies the Carmignano land. It is viewed as the estate’s historic wine - the family has bottles dating back to the 1925 vintage. The blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for over a year in tonneaux and around another 12 months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

93 Vinous
The 2017 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana takes its time opening in the glass, at first dusty with dried cherries and only a hint of dusty rose. Yet this is worth the wait, as its berry fruit transforms into crushed plums and raspberries, complemented by sweet herbs, hints of animal musk and flowery undergrowth. It washes dark elegant waves of mineral-tinged blackberries across the palate, offset by a twang of sour citrus, as hints of cocoa and tobacco build toward the close. This is structured and noble in feel, yet with enough primary concentration to nearly mask its grippy tannins, as touches of mint and dark chocolate linger through the medium-length finale. The balance that Capezzana has culled from this torridly hot and dry vintage is remarkable. That said, the 2017 is already drinking beautifully today after a good decant.

93 Decanter
The 2017 vintage was so dry and warm that by the end of September there were 400ml of rainfall registered compared to the annual average of 800-900ml. 'We were lucky to have 15 hectares under irrigation,' says Filippo Contini Bonacossi, 'thanks to the lakes obtained by my father. There we were able to produce outstanding grapes'. Aged partially in large oak, this organic Carmignano - a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon - shines for its richness of fruit with ripe cherry and cassis, clove and carrube spices, then officinal herbs in depth. Broad and powerful, extracted yet crunchy, it shows a fresh yet not overt acidity, with a glycerol-rich texture and a great saline finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2035.
