Description Build A Case!
RATINGS: 93pts James Suckling; 91pts Wine Spectator

Grapevines 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.

All of the grapes for the wines of Capezzana are produced on their estate vineyards. Filippo supervises their production with the utmost in care, using the minimum possible amount of chemical inputs to ensure the health of the vines. Great attention is paid to the size and density of the canopy and to the fruit load borne by each vine.
