Capezzana Red Blend Toscana IGT Ghiaie Della Furba 1997
Ghiaie della Furbe is a 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 20% Syrah blend aged in oak for 14 months and 2 months in bottle. It has a deep, intense ruby red color with light shades of garnet red. In terms of flavor its dense and sweet tannins create a well balanced acidity giving this wine a long finish with persistent fruitiness of small wild berries married to intense 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.
