Description

Overview: Few wineries in the world possess the stature, respect and devotion that the Contini Bonacossi family has cultivated and maintained over five generations with their Tenuta di Capezzana winery. The estate is located 12 miles west of Florence in the Carmignano sub-zone, one of the oldest recognized wine producing areas in Tuscany. Ancient Etruscan artifacts have shown that grapevines were cultivated in the area for wine production over 3,000 years ago. The first reference to Capezzana dates to 804 A.D.  An ancient parchment stored at the Florentine state archives shows the granting of a lease of vineyards and olive groves for the cultivation of wine and olive oil to a place called Capezzana.

Named after the historic Medici property known as "Barco Reale" - meaning Royal Property - which was established in 1626. Today Sangiovese, Cabernet and Canaiolo grow in this ancient area that was a hunting preserve surrounded by walls over 30 miles long.  Barco Reale is a younger version of Carmignano that received DOC status in 1994.

Tasting Notes: To the eye, this wine is purplish dark and deep red with ruby red shades. The aroma is sweet, ample, elegant, very intense and fruity with light tones of oak. On the palate, soft, voluminous, ample with sweet tannins of medium density in good balance with the acidity. Fruity, long lasting finish.

Pairing: Recommended with most pasta dishes and first courses in general and also with white and red meats
