Maceration without stalks is performed at a controlled temperature of 28°C for 10-12 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in steel vats. A maturation of at least 12 months follows, managed partly in small oak barrels, partly in tonneaux. The wine is blended in stainless steel vats. Very wide filtration is applied at the bottling stage, which is followed by ageing in glass for at least 6 months.

Vinous"The 2014 Chianti Classico is delicate, focused and very nicely done. This is a distinctly translucent, high-acid style very much shaped by the cool growing season. Bright red cherry, mint and rose petal add an attractive aromatic top register throughout. Tenuta di Capraia turned out a lovely Chianti Classico in 2014. Best of all, pricing is exceedingly fair. I would prefer to drink this mid-weight Chianti Classico over the next few years."

Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, moist soil, dark-skinned berry and a whiff of leather come together on this straightforward red. The tangy, no-frills palate offers wild cherry, raspberry and a hint of clove alongside zesty acidity.
