TENUTA DI CAPEZZANA
VILLA CAPEZZANA

Dark garnet-red colored with fine brown shades to the rim. It didn´t lost its intense and explosive nose. Quite the contrary. Features a lot of dark and sweet berries. The cherry is still apparent in the front. Some hints of almond paste and spices like clove and cardamom. Marvellous. Great entry on the palate. Stuffed with an expanding fruit. The acidity is simply outstanding and contributes a superb freshness. Supple and high-quality tannins. The finish leaves you dumbfounded. Villa Capezzana should be enjoyed now through 2025.

TENUTA DI CAPEZZANA
GHIAIE DELLA FURBA

Dark and nearly garnet-red hued colored. It reveals very shyly a great and profound fruit of cassis in combination with blackberries, raspberries, roasted coffee beans and hints of dark chocolate. The wood is very well integrated. Sweet. Really elegant and it comes along with an unbelievable juiciness and intense Fruit. Upper Class. This wines appeals definitely to all the Pauillac lovers in the wine world, with only one exception: it’s more bargain. Ghiaie della Furba remains the masterpiece from Carmignano. Best now through 2030+.
