Created as one of the very first protected wine-producing regions in Italy, the history of Carmignano dates back to 1716, when Cosimo III de' Medici granted the area special legal protections which prohibited other regions from using the name "Carmignano" for their wines. With vintages dating back to 1925 in their cellar, Villa di Capezzana is the flagship wine of the Tenuta di Capezzana estate and representative of Carmignano's greatest quality.
Organic farming. Native yeast. Aged in a combination of French oak (10% new) and neutral Slavonian barrels for 12 months.
A full-bodied, elegant wine with notes of blackberry, orange-peel, plum and earth. Round, with chewy tannins and a long finish.
