Professional Wine Reviews for Tenuta Di Capraia Chianti Classico Riserva 2013

Rated 94 by Vinous Media
The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Tenuta di Capraia. Deep and pliant on the palate, with gorgeous supporting structure, the 2013 is wonderfully complete. Black cherry, plum and lavender are some of the many nuances that develop. Above all else, though, the 2013 is impeccably balanced and pedigreed to the core. I loved it.
Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
There is an earthy depth to this red, with sanguine, iron and leather notes complementing the cherry and plum fruit. Broad and densely structured, offering a long aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2030. 2,000 cases made.

Winery Tenuta Di Capraia

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany has been producing fine wines for almost three thousand years, and as such is widely recognized as being one of the key Old World wine regions which have shaped the way we understand and enjoy quality wines throughout history. Interestingly, the region is typified by a unique soil type which is not particularly good for growing grapevines, but in Tuscany, the emphasis has always been on quality over quantity, and low yields with high levels of flavor and intensity are preferred, and have become a feature of the region's wine industry. The main grape varietals grown in Tuscany are Sangiovese for the distinctive, flavorful and complex red wines, and Vernaccia for the exquisite dry white wines, although the last couple of decades have seen more varietals grown and an increasing trend towards 'Bordeaux style' wines.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
