CHIANTI CLASSICO DOCG 2015
Dark rich red with powerful dark cherry aroma with deep elegant spice, clean acidity with balanced tannins that complete the complex palate.
95% Sangiovese 5% Ancellotta
This wine aged for a year in large wine casks to ensure that our delicate fruit notes were not overpowered by the oak tannins. Our goal was to create a wine that reflects our terroir and has the structure to be cellared long after its release.
This wine perfectly reflects the authenticity of Capaccia. The combination of high elevation, southern exposure and soil content allow for the Sangiovese grapes to ripen perfectly in any growing season.
WINE ENTHOUSIAST | 90 Points (2014):
A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Ancellotta, this opens with aromas of violet, black-skinned berry and cooking spice. The fresh, savory palate offers juicy black cherry, clove, white pepper and a hint of aromatic herb. It's balanced, with fine-grained tannins, lively acidity and good mid-term aging potential. Drink through 2024.
