Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 1 hour.

Vivid ruby red in colour, the nose of this Sangiovese / Malvasia Nera blend delivers ripe plum, raspberry, red fruit and almond. On the palate, this full bodied wine has well integrated tannins, great acidity which balances very well with the alcohol level. The flavours of raspberry, plum, nuts and vanilla come through with a floral hint. The finish is long culminating in a nutty end.

Matches very well with beef, game, rich pasta sauces and full bodied cheese.

Capannelle believes in combining the traditional with cutting edge technology and forward thinking wine making techniques. Following a carbonic maceration, the wine is fermented in steel vats for 15-20 days. The wine is then fermented in French or Austrian oak vats for 12-14 months, with a further period of bottle maturation.

Capannelle started life in 1974 when Raffaele Rossetti took over the property. The first wine was produced in 1975 which was a Chianti by the name of Casale. Over the next few years, the winery developed better working techniques and much better quality fruit and wine, transporting it into being recognised as one of the best manufacturers in quality terms. The vineyard is located in Radda in Chianti and has 16 hectares of mainly Sangiovese grapes but with a little Chardonnay, Malvasia Nera and Canaiolo mixed in. With a dedication to constantly improve their wines, they have now attained an almost cult status with some of their wines, resulting in demand always exceeding supply – a great position to be in!
