History

The Capannelle winery sits of 20 hectares of land in the Gaiole region in Chianti, Siena. Previously owned by Raffaele Rossetti, who bought a 16th century farmhouse, production at the winery began in 1974 and the first Chianti was released in 1975. Since the humble beginnings, the winery has grown to produce a Chardonnay IGT, Solare IGT, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, as well as a red 50&50, a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese. The idea for the 50&50 blend was inspired by an exceptional harvest in 1988 and features an Avignonesi di Montepulciano-produced Merlot, blending the best of two worlds. Capannelle production extends beyond wine, and yields 800 litres of extra-virgin olive oil every year.

Interesting Facts

The implementation of high tech approach to the wine production and careful attention to the ageing climate are a focus of the Capannelle winery. Stainless steel fermentation vats are used, in addition to all piping/valves being stainless steel, in order to ensure a hygienic and contained environment as well as to avoid altering the wine’s perfume. A microclimate is created by the fact that the barrique cellar is 3 meters underground climate-controlled to ensure the right level of temperature and humidity. The wine is aged in wooden containers, perfect for the Chardonnay and Solare wines, and the white wine barriques are replaced every year, while the red wine barriques are replaced every two years.
