Cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant before serving.

Capichera is a winery located off the Italian mainland, in a rocky corner of Sardinia. The winery creates beautiful expressions of Vermentino, Carignan and Syrah, grown in granite-rich soils near the town of Arzachena, on the island's northern side. Their history is closely intertwined with the history of top-quality Vermentino. Capichera pioneered the method of barrique ageing of the grape, allowing it to fully express all of its curious characteristics.

The phrase “Vendemmia Tardiva” which this wine takes its name from essentially means late harvest. This allows the Vermentino to reach a state of overripeness, sometimes completely drying out on the vine, but retaining high levels of residual sugar. The result is an explosive, high-alcohol wine, with hints of sweetness and intensely concentrated fruits.

Capichera’s VT exhibits a powerful bouquet, with notes of orange, lemon and honey mingling with floral and herbal elements. Despite the residual sugar, it is a dry wine, with a warm liqueur-like mouthfeel and comforting notes of orange peel, lime zest, walnut and saline. The finish stays with you for a while. It will pair well with seafood main courses or pasta with a pesto sauce.
