Vino Nobile di Montepulciano D.O.C.G.
A thick floor of clay topped by a thin calcareous layer characterises the Nobile’s underworld. The clay acts as a water reserve releasing just the right amount to the vineyards. This magical environment is where the tasting palette of Sangiovese comes to life. Based on the plots’ geolocation the grapes take on a nuance of their own. Our single vineyards represent the Sangiovese tasting palette with which our Nobile is made. All vinified in the same manner, they are truly different yet can come together harmonically.
Grace and purity make Caprile a unique expression of Sangiovese: delicate and elegant, Caprile will enchant you with its refined bouquet, reminiscent of strawberry pie, cooking sices, pink pepper grains and Mediterranean herbs. Warm and seductive, finesse and complexity will dominate your palate, accompanied by silky tannins and by an ethereal and persistent finish.
The grapes for Caprile were picked on October 4th.
Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with the use of indigenous yeasts and 11 days of maceration on the skins.
