Product Description

At 150-200 metres above sea level, lower lying than the Chianti norm, Carmignano can ripen Sangiovese a full fortnight earlier than Chianti and has no trouble ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. This latter variety is no newcomer to Carmignano. The tradition of blending small quantities of Cabernet with Sangiovese began in this area in the 1700s! Carmignano was also the first recognised region in Italy to have Cabernet and Merlot incorporated in to the DOCG. In fact, it is the only region where Cabernet must make up at least 10% of the blend. Legend has it that Capezzana's vines were sourced directly from a little known Pauillac vineyard called Lafite. Regardless, the best wines of the region bear no resemblance to the Super-Tuscan style. On the contrary, they are a lesson in how judicious blending can assist in bringing out the personality of local vineyards, as opposed to the other way around. The 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon blend for this wine has been in place for well over a decade with previous blending of Canaiolo now used solely in the Barco Reale.
