Caparsa Chianti Classico 2017

2017 Caparsa Chianti Classico

The 2017 Caparsa Chianti Classico oozes with classic Tuscan character and personality. One of the top Chianti Classico values of the high quality 2017 vintage, it is a thrilling red from one of the hottest estates in the region.

"Proprietor Paolo Cianferoni and his family craft deep, soulful wines loaded with character. The straight Chianti Classico (done mostly in cement) will give readers a terrific idea of the house style." - Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media

If you haven't figured it out yet, we love the wines from Caparsa. In fact, we are also currently featuring their Caparsino Chianti Classico Riserva and their Rosso di Toscana. There's just a lot to like about this tiny, family-run, certified organic estate based in Radda, in the hear of the Chianti Classico zone.

Antonio Galloni raved about this wine recently. "Caparsa's 2017 Chianti Classico is an absolute joy to taste. Succulent dark red cherry, mint, game, licorice and spice all flesh out in this super-expressive Chianti Classico. Open knit and inviting, the 2017 has both the depth and structure to drink well for a number of years. It is a terrific effort from Caparsa and a real overachiever in its peer group. Drink 2021 - 2032."

The Caparsa story is one of passion, commitment to quality, and respect for the land. Started by Paolo Cainferoni in 1982, the estate is certified organic and home to some old Sangiovese vines. Most of the estate's vines were planted in the mid 1960's, and these old vines produce tiny amounts of intensely flavored grapes. As a result, the resulting wines are intense, packced with flavor, and age-worthy.

I could go on and on, but the the proof is in the bottle(s). As Paolo says, his wines are for "wine lovers, with great complexity and strong emotions." I could not have put any better. These are serious wines for serious wine lovers, and they're not going to be around for long.
