Details

Chianti Classico Riserva Caparsa, Sangiovese, fruity, structured, elegant. A lovely example of Chianti Classico, with cherry and blackberry flavours, structure and balancing freshness. Drinking very well at the moment but certainly has the potential to age for years.

Caparsa is a vineyard run by Paolo Cianferoni and his big family since 1982. The winery is totally organic certified, both in the fields and in the cellar. Sangiovese is the main grape in Caparsa, wich is located in Radda in Chianti area, maybe one of the most charming and beautiful areas in the world and one of the highest quality wines production areas too. Caparsa wines have a unique and unmistakable acid tone, where the bouquet and the tannins come out at their best. That's the reason Caparsa's wines have a very long life.
Caparsa's philosophy can be simplified in one single word: tradition. Their wine culture is handed down since the sharecropping system, when the wine was considered like food and complementary to food.
Particularly, it's the territory that gives originality to all their products: flora, fauna, insects, fungal, microorganisms, soils, weather conditions, fields exposure etc .together with workers and Paolo himself, all of this make the wine unique.
