Capezzana Barco Reale Carmignano
Owned by the Medici family in the 1700s, it was the first demarcated region with it’s own grape growing rules, establishing the first de facto DOCG in Italy. The 53 km wall separating the Medici’s hunting grounds (now known as Carmignano) was called Barco Reale. Today Capezzana produces 80% of the entire appellation.
Aromas of black cherry, blackberry, plum, spice and dried herbs. Smooth, soft tannins with a lengthy finish. Pairs well with most pasta dishes and meat courses.
Grapes: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Canaiolo
