Wine Box of 6 white and rosé wines, 2 per label
Severe green harvesting and late picking, a very rich must is obtained, which ferments and ages in tonneaux, acquires elegant secondary aromas and lends itself to long ageing. On the nose, almond, yellow flowers of the field, vanilla. In the mouth it is intense with delicate tannins, with a complex and persistent aftertaste.
Enveloping and fruity, with notes of tropical fruit, banana, pineapple then white and yellow flowers. Soft in the mouth with alcohol elegantly balanced to the structure of the wine. Long and persistent.
Ruspo di Carmignano Wine 2020, Sangiovese, Cabernet and Canaiolo
Brief contact with the skins still gives the wine its lovely rosé colour even though it comes from red grapes such as Sangiovese, Cabernet and Canaiolo. Hints of small red fruits at the mouth, then floral scents of violets and roses. Soft, with a good balance between freshness and intensity in the mouth. Long fruity finish.

In Carmignano the vine has been present for more than 3000 years. Wine vases and wine-tasting cups found in Etruscan tombs are clear evidence of such ancient viticulture in this territory. In the state archives of Florence, a parchment was found that documents how vines and olive groves were already being cultivated in Capezzana in the 9th century AD.
From the Renaissance onwards, various families took over the ownership of the estate built in 1475 by Mona Nera Bonaccorsi: Cantucci, Marchesi Bourbon del Monte, Adimari Morelli, Franchetti Rothschild and finally the Contini Bonacossi, the current owners, in 1920.
Later Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi enlarged the property with the purchase, from Marquis Aman Niccolini, of two neighbouring farms, "Il Poggetto" and "Trefiano".
Thus was born the Capezzana Estate, divided into 3 farms and more than 120 estates, dedicated to the production of high quality wine and oil. Alessandro's passion for collecting led him to preserve bottles, so that today Capezzana can boast a collection of historic vintages starting from 1925.
Over the decades the Estate has seen five generations of winemakers, and in 2009 a virtuous path of organic practice in the vineyard, now certified, began.
Mechanisation is limited to the control of spontaneous grasses, so no chemical herbicides are used. We also continue to use the ancient practice of green manure with the sowing of legumes and grasses in alternate rows. A natural way to enrich the soil with nitrogen. Certain to leave a still fertile land and not a mountain of poisoned and sterile plastic to future generations. So not "Integrated Struggle" (don't be fooled, they predict pesticides, chemistry in the vineyard), but rather "Integrated Respect."
