Tenuta Di Capraia
Tenuta Di Capraia, located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, is the leading producer of classic Italian wines. Rocca di Castagnoli owns and manages it, and it was certified organic in 2017. This radar manufacturer is a founding member of the Consorzio Chianti Classico. To maintain their high-quality wines, they only bottle the best in production.
Capraia is situated on a hill that was once visited by Etruscans. It looks out over the valley from a hilltop reminiscent of antiquity, surrounded by woods, vineyards, and olive groves. The villa, vineyard, and wine cellar have all undergone extensive renovations.
In the absence of drought, the temperature for brewing Chianti is typically kept at 28°C, and the wine is macerated for 10-12 days. In stainless steel vats, the grapes ferment. This brewing process takes at least a year. Some grapes are fermented in small oak barrels while others are fermented in large stainless steel vats. Investigate various filter bottling methods. To finish, the wine is aged for at least 6 months after bottling.
Sangiovese - Blood of Zeus - the most cultivated red grape variety in Italy
Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means "Jupiter's blood." Though it is the grape of most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio (the most widespread grape in Tuscany), Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the main component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines.
Canaiolo is a red Italian wine grape that is grown throughout Central Italy but is best known in Tuscany. Lazio, Marche, and Sardegna are other regions where Canaiolo is grown. A white berry mutation known as Canaiolo Bianco exists in Umbria. It is frequently used in the production of Chianti wine, along with Sangiovese and Colorino, and is an important but secondary component of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
