Description

History

Capichera is one of the most important and renowned Sardinian wineries in Gallura, located in Arzachena, “set” among the granite rocks of the area. Despite having achieved strong commercial success, the company has remained family-run since the 1970s; its peculiarity was the intuition of enhancing Vermentino in purity, sometimes vinifying in barriques and giving life to very long-lived wines capable of improving over time. Over the years the company has been able to produce interesting wines also based on red berried grapes, such as Carignano and Syrah able to perfectly represent the territory.

Grapes used

Vermentino 100%

Production method

The Vermentino grapes are harvested when the optimal polyphenolic ripeness is reached, which usually occurs between the end of August and the beginning of September. After the destemming and soft pressing of the grapes, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. The malolactic fermentation is instead carried out in barriques. The refinement of the Vermentino is carried out in new and almost new barriques for 4-6 months.

Alcohol content

14%

Tasting notes

Intense straw yellow color with golden reflections. On the nose notes of tropical yellow fruit, intense flint, field flowers, elderberry, rosemary and wisteria, with hints of white pepper and vanilla. On the palate it has a good softness, with pleasant notes of ripe fruit and a balanced final acidity. Long finish that refers to spicy and ripe notes.

Possible combinations

Capichera Vermentino is a soft and structured white wine, ideal in combination with tasty and well-cooked fish-based dishes. If necessary and given the great aging potential, Capichera transforms into a perfect meditation wine.
