Capezzana Barco Reale di Carmignano 2016
Purplish dark and deep red with ruby red shades. Intense aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries with a hint of oak. Concentrated, with sweet, dense tannins and a lush, velvety texture with dark berry fruit flavors mingling on the finish.
rapevines were already cultivated for wine production in the vicinity of Capezzana 3000 years ago. The present vineyard was named in Roman times, and written records of the present vineyard date to 932 A.D. During the Renaissance, the property was controlled by the Medici family. The estate passed by marriage through several noble Tuscan families, until it came under the control of the Contini Bonacossi family early in the 20th century. Today the property is run by the Bonacossi family – Filippo runs the vineyards, Bernadetta makes the wine, and Beatrice handles commercial matters.
