Vines were cultivated in Capezzana as early as 3000 years ago, as demonstrated by many discoveries made on site. In 1475 Monna Nera Bonaccorsi built the estate almost as it is today in Carmignano, in the province of Prato, Tuscany. Ownership of the estate has been handed down to many families over the centuries: the Cantuccis, relatives of the Medici, and then the Marquises Bourbon del Monte. After this long period in which the estate was expanded several times and large and modern (for the time) archives were created, the estate passed to the Adimari Morellis and then to the Franchetti Rothschilds to then reach the Contini Bonaccossi family in 1920, who still today he leads the company.

Grapes used

Tuscan Trebbiano and San Colombano

Production method

The ripest and most intact Trebbiano and San Colombano grapes are carefully selected and left to dry on mats until the end of February according to the traditional method. The must obtained is then placed in kegs where a natural and slow alcoholic fermentation begins; the product will stay in the barrel for at least 5 years or more depending on the vintage. The yield is very low: it is possible to obtain Vin santo which weighs ⅕ compared to the grape used to produce it. At the end of this period the vin santo is finally bottled and can be left to age without time limits, acquiring more and more aromas and nuances over the years that enrich it infinitely.

In the mouth viscous, soft and enveloping, full, delicate and elegant. Very long and balanced finish between ripe fruit and spices, exquisitely elegant aftertaste. An icon.

Possible combinations
