      “Vin Ruspo” Rosato di Carmignano DOC 2019 (BIO)

      Vin Ruspo means "stolen wine." Originally, the winery workers used to divert a part of the young must every year to drink it during and after work to strengthen and rennet it. Strong, sparkling rosé. Fruity, floral nose, fresh on the palate with a good acid wire and an enamel that makes this wine an excellent accompaniment to food or a sun-kissed soloist. A demanding, independent drop. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant orange with a delicate pink tint in the glass. Fine spicy notes, of China bark, white pepper and ripe raspberries. On the palate with pressure, shows fine enamel, straightforward, in the back with present body, good food companion." Falstaff

The wine is fermented spontaneously and aged in large and small wooden barrels, one third of the small wood is renewed every year.

      Decanting recommended. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aged partially in large oak, this organic Carmignano - a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon - shines for its richness of fruit with ripe cherry and cassis, clove and carrube spices, then officinal herbs in depth.

    • "Ghiaie della Furba" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 (BIO)

      “Ghiaie della Furba” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 (BIO)

      Ghiaie della Furba means "pebbles of the Furba stream" and there is a reason for that, because the vines for this wine stand on the river pebbles on the banks of this stream. It is one of the first "Supertoscans" ever.

      This extremely complex red shows after an hour in the carafe a wonderfully clear, dark fruit, blackberries and cassis, plus coffee notes, dark chocolate and spices. Impressive its very good structure and personality. He is already today (with aeration) well accessible, hides there, however, still his big potential for the next decade. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From a classic vintage, the wine opens to a darkly saturated color with rich ruby and garnet highlights. Fruit is sourced from a site not too far from the Furba River, from which the wine takes its name. It closes with an open-knit texture, big structure and an accessible style that makes it perfect to drink straight out of the gate." Robert Parker

      "Lots of spice and intensity here with chocolate, blackberry and coffee aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish." James Suckling

    • "Trefiano" Rosso Carmignano Riserva DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      “Trefiano” Rosso Carmignano Riserva DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      The wine comes from a neighbouring single walled vineyard around Villa di Trefiano, which produces a wonderfully elegant variant of Carmignano. Trefiano Riserva remains in used 350-litre tonneaux for 18 months after spontaneous fermentation.

      Deep dark ruby red. Black cherry and cassis on the nose, plus an intense, ripe and juicy plum. Long, multi-layered and complex on the palate, the Riserva needs a little more air and shows more depth than the classic Carmignano. The 10% Canaiolo content is responsible for its irresistible fragrance and complexity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Carmignano Riserva Trefiano is a dense, powerful wine. It offers tons of richness in a more overt style than the straight Carmignano. Black cherry, spice, leather, licorice and mocha give the Riserva its plush contours and exuberant feel. I prefer the straight bottling for its greater purity of fruit, but the Trefiano is undoubtedly nicely crafted." Vinous

      "Balance and harmony are the hallmarks of this red, despite the youthful exuberance. Black cherry, blackberry, plum, iron, earth and underbrush flavors are supported by assertive, dusty tannins, offset by ample fruit and energy." Wine Spectator

      "In the 2015 Carmignano Riserva Trefiano, Sangiovese (80%) is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Canaiolo. This wine offers steady elegance and a compact, crisp approach that comes from the two Tuscan grapes. That small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, on the other hand, adds textual richness and firm tannins. This is a beautifully fleshed out and generous red wine from a very warm and sunny vintage in Tuscany." Robert Parker

      Deep dark yellow. On the nose, rich, almost opulent impressions of candied apricots, orange zest and traces of fine yellow flowers. The taste is complex of candied fruits with a wonderfully polished sweetness and a long, persistent finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Firm, complex and deep, clearly oxidative aroma of dried yellow fruits and flowers, tobacco, nuts and smoke with woody notes. Very tightly woven, distinctly concentrated, again partly dried, very sweet and at the same time tart-spicy fruit with dried floral, iodine, nutty and smoky tones, certain acid bite and grip of ripe tannin, multilayered, deep and persistent on the palate, honey tones, maple syrup and again also vanilla wood spice, plenty of power and substance, viscous texture, salt in the background, coffee next to it, completely ageless style, long, highly concentrated, complex finish. Will be able to age for generations." Wein-Plus

      "On the palate, it is voluptuously sweet and multi-dimensioned, the balance coming from its many aromatic allusions (more crystallised fruit and dried flowers, as well as barleysugar, ginger spice and buttered almonds) and from its subtle oxidative complexities rather than from acidity. Its glycerous texture, volume and wealth give it an easy sippability...with or without a cantucci biscuit to dip as you go." Decanter

      This impressive red comes from the single vineyard "Vitticciana", which was created by the "Godfather of Carmignano" Ugo Contini Bonacossi because of the perfect orientation especially for a pure Sangiovese wine. It is produced only in the best years, and there it presents itself complex and of fine fruit with fine-grained tannin. After a few years of bottle ageing, it can easily compete with some of the best Brunello di Montalcino. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine represents a special selection of organic Sangiovese. The Tenuta di Capezzana 2016 Ugo Contini Bonacossi shows great balance and harmony with highly distinctive varietal aromas. It opens to wild berry, cherry, pressed violet and earth. However, these aromas are slightly darker or heavier in character, keeping in line with the distinctive qualities of a growing region located west of Florence toward the Tyrrhenian Sea."

    About the winemakersTenuta di CapezzanaTuscany | Chianti
    Tenuta di Capezzana

    "Our greatest good is our land. It's been feeding us for generations, and we want it to stay that way. So we must treat it with respect," is the motto of the Contini Bonacossi family. Well, that's what almost all wine producers say. But hardly anyone formulated it as forcefully and convincingly as the over 90-year-old senior, Conte Ugo Contini Bonacossi, who was already over 90 at the time.

    Of course, this has a background, because the first attempts to switch to organic cultivation ended in a disaster. So you started a second time, slower and more careful. You could say over decades. New vineyards were planted more densely, with 6000 to 9000 vines per hectare, enormous hours invested and finally all vineyards and olive groves were certified organic.

    Finally, the splendid palazzo from the early Renaissance, which sits on the hills near Carmigiano, just a few kilometres west of Florence, was renovated in an exemplary manner and transformed into a lively meeting place. It was also Conte Ugo who made Carmigiano a DOC again, against all resistance from the authorities, by proving that Carmigiano already existed a quarter of a millennium ago as a wine-growing region with defined borders. Actually, the Etruscans cultivated wine here 3,000 years ago.

    A vineyard Capezzana is documented in writing in the year 804. The Contini Bonacossi family bought the property from the Rothschilds in the 1920s. It is said that the same Cabernet Sauvignon clones grow here as on Château Lafite. Cabernet has a very long tradition here, in addition to Sangiovese. Vittorio Contini Bonacossi, who managed the estate until his surprising death, also loved autochthonous varieties and planted more Canaiolo and Mammolo. Benedetta and Gaddo continue these traditions in cellars and vineyards. The Carmigiano region, which has since been upgraded to DOCG, allows this variety diversity because it wanted to counteract the acidity of Sangiovese. Therefore the wines here are a little rounder, milder than in the rest of the Chianti area and wonderfully fruity, with a very fine tannin structure. To a certain extent elegance with tradition.

    Serena, Vittorio's daughter, has now opened the winery to the public and has set up a wine bar, an agriturismo with wonderful rooms and a cooking school. Filippo takes care of the more than 30,000 olive trees, which are cultivated on about 140 hectares and cultivated by hand with the help of countless small farmers. The whole family, not exactly a small one, works in various fields, preserves the tradition and for five generations has carefully linked it with today's times.

    The wines have received many awards and prove their maturity potential time and again, as hundreds of bottles of each vintage have been stored for decades. SUPERIORE.DE
