Bright with persistent bubbles, the wine has a fruity aroma of citrus, green apple, and acacia blossoms. On the palate, the elegant, brut-style wine has a crisp, clean, bright acidity that cleanses the palate and refreshes the mouth, freshness, and a soft, round mouthfeel full of citrus fruits, ripe lemon, and apple. Best enjoyed on its own.
Caposaldo was created in honor of the Roman Empire’s most famous racing horse of the Circus Maximus. Competing for an astounding 24 years and winning 1,500 of his over 4,000 races this horse gained the favor of Emperor Nero, who anointed the horse “Caposaldo”. In today’s modern world the classic icon of the horse still resonates as a symbol of superior achievement and quality. Standing as a benchmark of classic Italian wines from select regions of Italy, Caposaldo blends the best of a family / hand crafted artisanal approach to wine making with modern quality standards and techniques.
