Notes: Ugo & Vittorio Contini Bonacossi decided to produce a Bordeaux blend in Carmignano in 1979. The wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah & Merlot grapes from a gravelly soil (Ghiaie) near the Furba stream after which the wine is named.

This wine is intense ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are complex notes of black cherries, sage, chocolate, cassis & new leather. This is a full-bodied wine with well-balanced acidity that will reward a few years ageing while its formidable tannins melt away & the oak integrates further.

Grapes for this wine are grown on the alluvial valley of the Furba River. The south/south-west facing vineyards are situated at approximately 150-200 metres above sea level. The ideal climatic conditions allow Capezzana to practise an eco-friendly form of farming, without using pesticides. Other sustainable farming practices at Capezzana include the use exclusively of organic fertilisers, a techinque known as “sovescio” (ploughing under legume & cereal crops grown between the vines’ rows), & no use whatsoever of herbicides.

 

Producer Info: The Capezzana estate, 24 kilometres north west of Florence, is owned by the Contini Bonacossi family. The younger generation is now firmly in charge of the estate’s 80 hectares of vineyard, with daughter Benedetta Contini Bonacossi as winemaker & Francesco Bernabei as consultant winemaker. The wines & the olive oil have an elegance which marks this estate out from the crowd.
