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.”
Intense ruby with violet flecks in the glass. On the nose, tons of fruit and spice, primarily ripe blackberry and wild strawberry with a little vanilla. On the palate, much of the same; full, soft, fruity, and persistent. Pair with your favourite red sauce pasta dishes, a number of charcuterie spreads, and chicken.
Made from 100% Sangiovese, separate fermentations occur with 15-day macerations at 28 °C – 15%. The grapes from Montalcino exclusively undergo cryomaceration at 8 °C for 48 hours to extract primary aromas, followed by a 7-day fermentation at 25 °C, which is then interrupted to have a higher residual sugar content for the final blend.
