CAPEZZANA BARCO REALE DI CARMIGNANO
This wine comprises 75% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Canaiolo, all grown on the Medici property in the hamlet of Artimino some 20 kilometres north of Florence. It was vinified in stainless steel and matured in Allier oak barrels for three months. Expect zingy cherry, blackcurrant and evergreen notes and pour with eggplant parmigiana.
The Barco Reale leads with charming cherry & plum skin aromas that persist on the palate. These fruity notes are balanced with the cassis, cigar box, cedar, and lead pencil nuances of the Cabernets. Fine tannins, lifting acidity, and hints of cinnamon, cloves, licorice, and sassafras join dusty soil notes and reprises of currant and cherry fruit on the Barco Reale’s long, lingering finish.
