GamePasta DishesRoast meats
Caparzo was established towards the end of the 1960’s. The vineyards of the Caparzo Estate include about. 90 hectares (210 acres) in Montalcino. The estate is located on a hillside area 220 metres above sea level, facing south and south-east. The company has grown and adapted with the times all while maintaining and respecting the traditions of the terroir. The rustic and elegant Caparzo villa, La Casa, located at the bottom of Montalcino is available for rent for those who want to fully experience the beauty and tranquillity of the Tuscan countryside. The origins of the place named Caparzo are still unknown and according to some, the name is derived, as shown by ancient maps, from Ca’ Pazzo. However, some say the term should derive from the Latin Caput Arsum, indicating “a place touched by sun.”
The wine is full and juicy on the palate, with lots of ripe fruit, herbs and a leathery note. The balanced and integrated acidity and tannin make this a great wine to enjoy with roast meats, game or strong cheeses. You can open this and decant it to enjoy now or cellar for up to ten years.
Made from 100% Sangiovese, fermentation occurs in stainless steel for 10-15 days at a temperature of 28 degrees C. Delestage takes place 2-3 times and pumping over is done twice a day. After 36-48 hours, seeds are removed to avoid too much tannin in the wine. Aged for three years in 30-50 hl traditional Slovenian and French oak casks.
