Chianti Classico “Capotondo” 2020 Docg

In vineyard

Sangiovese 88% and Canaiolo 12%, the soil is characterized by the predominant presence of galestro and alberese stone with a small percentage of boulder and sandstone.
The 2020 is characterized by a cool spring, followed by a warm summer, with large termic range between day and night, which lead to the perfect phenolic maturation of the grapes and optimal aromatic profile. The months of June and July are quite rainy, thus avoiding the achievement of water stress.
The harvest begins on the 7th and ends on the 22nd of October with grapes that are perfectly healthy and of great quality upon arrival in the cellar.

In cellar

The grapes are collected and carefully selected. Maceration takes place in concrete tanks for 25/30 days. The wine is then placed in steel tanks until the month of December, after which it takes a step into a large barrel and barrique of third or fourth ride for 10-12 months, allowing for the ripening of tannins. It follows an ageing in bottle.

Tasting notes

Red colour laden with pleasant purple tones. Good body, good acidity and freshness, with prevailing floral notes, hints of red rose and violet. The scents of red fruits prevail, with mature fruit trends as the red fruit, blueberry, cherry and plum, slightly spicy. A wine of great harmony, typical and balanced, of great character.


A distinguished personality that exalts the altitude of Castelvecchi, situated between 450 and 600 meters above sea level. A wine that promises to evolve sublime over time, expressing a great longevity.


Wide wine, excellent for all meal and to accompany first tasty dishes as sausage and mushroom lasagne, baked red meat or platter of cold cuts and cheeses of medium maturing.
