About

91

"The 2007 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana is a huge extroverted wine bursting with wild dark cherries, grilled herbs and tobacco. The intense, opulent style is not for the faint of heart. Still, this is a beautifully balanced wine with notable intensity and a persistent finish. The Villa di Capezzana is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022." (08/11)

"Plenty of dried fruits, with currants and light prune. Full body, with silky tannins and a fruity finish. Drink after 2011." (12/11)

90 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Deep ruby-red. Ripe dark berries, iron, leather and tobacco on the nose. Then soft and ripe on the attack, but with bright flavors of dark berries, minerals and almond paste. Sharply delineated for a wine from such a hot vintage, and very long on the aftertaste, which hints at forest floor and red cherry syrup." (09/12)

Product Description:

Wine:
"This is the estate's historic wine and is highly representative of the qualities of Carmignano. D.O.C. status was re-obtained in 1975 and D.O.C.G. in the 1990's. It is produced from Sangiovese (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). D.O.C.G. wines are matured for over one year in tonneaux and then laid down for a further twelve months in bottles."

"Made from Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The soil composition is clay and schist and limestone. The harvest happens at the end of September and in early October. Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks, malolactic fermentation in french oak. Aging happens in barrique and tonneaux of 3.50 hl. for 15 months and in bottle for at least 10 months. Pairing suggestions include both red and white meats as well as most types of cheese." - Winery

This wine was also scored 88 Points by Wine Spectator.
