Capricci Toscana IGT Rosso, an embodiment of refined taste, is a testament to our unwavering commitment to sustainable practices that honor and safeguard the environment. Manifesting the distinct essence of its birthplace, this wine originates from vineyards that boast ancient vines, over half a century in age, situated within sight of the sea, just a short distance from the historic town of Scansano and the picturesque gateway to the Tuscan archipelago, Porto Santo Stefano.
The vineyard’s terroir, characterized by a blend of clay and sandy soil, sits at an elevation of 350m above the azure sea. The scarcity of rainfall in the Maremma region bestows upon the grapes a heightened flavor profile, lending a touch of enchantment to every sip. Hand-picked with meticulous care, the grapes used in this wine undergo a meticulous selection process, ensuring only the finest make their way into the bottle.
Embarking on a transformative journey, this wine ferments under strict temperature control at 25°C, basking in a 10-day maceration period with the grape skins. Afterward, it matures in stainless steel vats for a year, further refining its extraordinary qualities. The final touch of artistry involves a nine-month sojourn in French Oak barrels, followed by three months of bottle aging. The result is a full-bodied elixir with an imposing structure, making it a perfect companion for antipasti adorned with crostini and delectable cold cuts. It also harmonizes beautifully with pasta dishes embellished with sumptuous sauces.
