Capezzana Carmignano 2004
Carmignano is a 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon blend aged in oak for 12 months and an additional 6 months in bottle. Its ruby red color becomes amber with age, and has an aroma that is earthy, fruity, and spicy. On the palate it is soft with dense, sweet tannins, well balanced acidity that’s harmonious with both texture and body giving it a long, persistent finish, fruity with small red fruits and spicy tones.
Tenuta di Capezzana in Tuscany’s Carmignano was renowned for its vineyards in 804 A.D. Today the Count Bonacossi family melds past & present, making wines traditional to the region with modern techniques – using vines grafted from Château Lafite, and blending Cabernet & Sangiovese to create what became known as a Super Tuscan.
