Even in Tuscany, summer 2014 was cooler compared to the average of the last 10 years. This condition resulted in wines slightly less “Mediterranean” with slightly higher acid and fresh and highly floral aromas.
Ruby red with violet hues. Notes of red berries and black fruit as well as floral notes of violet and spice. In the mouth, the wine is balanced with tannins, structure and a long, elegant finish.

about the grape +
Sangiovese has aromas of black cherries with alluring wood, smoke, tar and herbal notes. The best wines made from this grape have incredible complexity, depth, finesse and power.
The fruit for each Caposaldo wine is hand harvested from low-yielding vineyards in prime growing areas in the classic wine regions of Tuscany, the Veneto and Lombardy.
