Toscana Rosso IGT “Ghiaie della Furba” 2019- Capezzana

Full Body Red

This wine is intense ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are complex notes of black cherries, sage, chocolate, cassis and new leather. This is a full-bodied wine with well-balanced acidity that will reward a few years ageing while its formidable tannins melt away and the oak integrates further.

About this wine

To produce the Toscana Rosso IGT “Ghiaie della Furba” Capezzana fermentation lasted seven days and took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Temperatures did not exceed 28ºC during fermentation. After 13 days of maceration, the wine was transferred into barriques, where malolactic fermentation was completed within one month. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barriques of which 50% were new. It remained in bottle for at least a year before release. Grapes for this wine are grown on the alluvial valley of the Furba River. The south/south-west facing vineyards are situated at approximately 150-200 metres above sea level. The ideal climatic conditions allow Capezzana to practise an eco-friendly form of farming, without using pesticides. Other sustainable farming practices at Capezzana include the use exclusively of organic fertilisers, a techinque known as “sovescio” (ploughing under legume and cereal crops grown between the vines’ rows), and no use whatsoever of herbicides.
Capezzana, situated in the Carmignano zone to the west of Florence, is owned and run by the Contini Bonacossi family, the latest in a long line of owners. In fact, in the archives in Florence, they discovered a contract for the rent of vines and olive groves at Capezzana signed in 804 AD. Today, the responsibility for ensuring the continuation of such longevity lies with the fourth generation of the Contini Bonacossi family, with Beatrice looking after all marketing and communication aspects and her sister Benedetta in charge of winemaking. Franco Bernabei is their consultant winemaker, and his contribution and presence has given the wines additional focus and personality. The estate has 80 hectares of vineyard and 30,000 olive trees, all of which are farmed organically (the wines are certified organic from the 2015 vintage onwards).
