It goes well with all meats in general and with cheeses. Intense ruby red, elegant, with notes of black cherry and raspberry well blended with ripe fruit. Soft, enveloping in the mouth, with soft tannins and good body. Acidity is present, but well balanced by tannic richness. Long finish, with an aftertaste that tends towards sweet licorice.
95 Pts – Decanter
Mainly Sangiovese. Has an enticing nose with ripe red and black fruits and a floral perfume. Firm tannins but a lovely texture and understated oak. Plenty of future.
93 Pts – James Suckling
Fascinating aromas of blueberries, orange peel and watermelon following through to a full body. Round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Lots of toasted oak showing now, but it should come out beautifully with bottle age. Made from organically grown grapes
91 Pts – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Made with organic fruit, the 2015 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (aged in tonneaux for 12 months). This is the flagship wine made by this estate, and it has been in production since 1925. This warm vintage opens to abundant fruit with black cherry and blackberry at the front. Softer tones of spice, leather and tobacco fill in the rear. You get great value in this easy-drinking mid-weight Tuscan red.
90 Pts – Jeb Dunnuck
Including 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Sangiovese-dominated 2015 Carmignano Villa Di Capezzana was aged all in French oak and held in bottle for a short period prior to release. This spicy, peppery, and black cherry-fruited effort is medium-bodied, has a round, nicely textured mouthfeel, light tannins, and a good finish. It’s an outstanding blend that should evolve for a decade.
