About the wine

The Sangiovese grapes are sourced from the three different estates of Caparzo’s, the vineyards are found in Montalcino, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Magliano. To ensure optimum fruit quality, the grapes are harvested at different times and vinified separately. 15 day maceration on the skins before fermentation takes places in stainless steel to retain fruit and freshness. The wine also goes through a spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The final blend is made just before bottling and the wine is aged for 1-3 months in bottle before being released.
