Available for:
This wine displays an intense aroma of red berries, even cherries under spirit, over notes of cocoa beans and well-integrated hints of oak. On the palate it is warm and powerful, and the tannic structure adds drinkability and elegance to the wine. At the same time, its acidity and minerality grant for a long and refreshing finish. In order to preserve the natural features of this wine, only natural methods have been used for stabilization, and it has only been slightly filtered.

This offers depth along with an alluring expression of cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Charming and approachable, yet there's a dense structure underneath as well as vibrant acidity. The long finish reveals rosemary and iron elements. Best from 2024 through 2042. 500 cases made, 250 cases imported.

The 2018 Effe 55, 100% Sangiovese, is another intriguing wine from Capraia. It has plenty of depth, that much is pretty clear. At the same time, I would prefer to see more freshness in the finished wine. Red-fleshed fruit, cinnamon, wild flowers and blood orange linger nicely.
