IGT Toscana 2011

The 2011 a warm year and one of our best vintages. The growing season allowed the grapes to mature without any trace of stress. The wine reflects this perfection with the presence of floral notes entwined with the cherry. This 100% Sangiovese wine is the flagship of the estate and reflects the elegance of Capaccia. This wine received 91 points from Luca Maroni.
