Wine producers of the highest quality located in Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, the Capannelle estate extends over 20 hectares (16 hectares of vines) and produces approximately 80.000 bottles of wine a year. The history of Capannelle wine production dates back to 1974, when Raffaele Rossetti, a Roman businessman, purchased the 16th century farmhouse. Extensive renovations and restoration have resulted in a unique luxury property producing exceptional wines. Today, it is owned by James B. Sherwood, founder and shareholder of the Orient – Express Hotels.
Deep ruby red colour with purplish reflections. The bouquet jumps out of the glass and shows toast, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, red fruits. In mouth it is a little astringent, warm, structured, and fresh with glucid tannins. Notes of iris, undergrown, musk mixed with vanilla. Long and persistent finish that develops slowly into moss, brushwood, iris, juniper and a little of wild fennel.
