Capezzana Red Blend Toscana IGT Ghiaie Della Furba 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Capezzana:
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.
