Chianti Classico Riserva 'Caparsino' Caparsa 2017

Caparsa

The "Caparsino" is a Chianti Classico Riserva of great typicality and spontaneity, aged for one year in oak barrels. The nose is expressed on notes of ripe red fruit, gentle aromas of spices, rustic and bucolic aromas that recall the earth. At the sip it has a rich and pulpy texture, of snappy dynamism and good freshness, with a tannic grip that generates a pleasant astringency. Artisanal and Organic wine

CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA 'CAPARSINO' CAPARSA 2017 DESCRIPTION

The 'Caparsino' Chianti Classico Riserva from Caparsa presents itself as a crunchy and rich red wine, a true expression of Chianti. Caparsa is a family-run estate located in Radda in Chianti, a renowned subzone of Chianti Classico at the pinnacle of the appellation. In this place, the enchanting hills are lined with orderly rows of vines surrounded by lush woods, creating an environment of harmony and biodiversity. Established in 1965 by Reginaldo Cianferoni, the estate is now managed by his son Paolo and his family. With meticulous attention in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the cellar, they produce with full respect for the ancient and historic traditions of the region. The label features a charming scene of a man drinking from the traditional Chianti fiasco.

The Chianti Classico 'Caparsino' Riserva from Caparsa is crafted solely from Sangiovese grapes, cultivated 450 meters above sea level according to certified organic farming principles. After the harvest, which is entirely done by hand, alcoholic fermentation takes place in concrete vats with the help of only indigenous yeasts. Using concrete vats as containers for vinification is a very ancient practice that promotes spontaneous fermentations due to the insulation provided and the natural porosity of the wine vessel. The subsequent maturation phase occurs for 12 months in various types of 18-hectoliter oak barrels, followed by an extended period of bottle ageing.

In appearance, Caparsa Chianti Classico Riserva 'Caparsino' reveals a ruby red colour tending towards garnet. Complex scents of black and red fruits, violet, almond, and aromatic herbs define the olfactory spectrum. The palate stands out for its richness and structure, well balanced by crisp freshness and robust tannins. A great Chianti Classico to pair with hearty meat dishes.
