PRODUCER: The vineyard was bought from Paolo's father Prof. Reginaldo Cianferoni in 1965 and he's the one that started to build the vine fields. Those old fields has been refurbished from Paolo since 1999 and they cover a surface of 28,10 acres. The winery is totally organic certified, both in the fields and in the cellar. Sangiovese is the main grape in Caparsa, wich is located in Radda in Chianti area, maybe one of the most charming and beautiful areas in the world and one of the highest quality wines production areas too. Caparsa wines have a unique and unmistakable acid tone, where the bouquet and the tannins come out at their authentic terroir. That's the reason Caparsa's wines have a very long life.
WINEMAKING: Made with Trebbiano and Malvasia and Canaiolo grapes dried on columns and mats from September to December and successively pressed and fermented/matured in “caratelli”, small barrels, for 6 years.
TASTING NOTES: Concentrated aromas of dried fruit, candied apricot and orange peel. Rich and intensely sweet on the palate with further notes of fig and dried apricot. The sweetness is balanced by a fresh acidity and the finish is lingering and spicy.
