Carmignano Villa di Capezzana, Capezzana 2013
Capezzana is a region in Tuscany, close to neighbouring Chianti yet with a warmer climate, which allows the Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend to ripen well.
Ruby red in colour with a restrained, elegant nose. Perfumes of dark cherry and liquorice give way to spice and plums on the palate. Rounded tannins from the Sangiovese are lifted by the cassis and blackcurrant of the Cabernet and melt into a long, perfumed finish. Great match with roast meat.
