About Capezzana 2013 Carmignano DOCG

During the Renaissance, this 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.

Carmignano was the first Tuscan DOC to sanction the use of  Cabernet Sauvignon is the blend. Today it must be at least 50% Sangiovese and can be up to 20% Cabernet. This 2013 is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in both barriques and large tonneux.

It has 92 points scored from Cellar Tracker and Wine Spectator also scored it 92 saying "Ripe cherry and black currant aromas and flavors are clear and fresh, shaded by tobacco, leather, earth and iron notes. Intense and firm, with a mineral- and tobacco-steeped aftertaste. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2025."

James Suckling scored it 93 saying "Lovely balance to this with dark berry, hints of walnut and spice character. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now or hold."
