Capezzana Barco Reale di Carmignano DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Barco Reale is the youthful wine from the Carmignano area, soft and fruity.

Tasting Notes

A shiny, rich ruby red colour in the glass. Cherry and plum aromas are complemented by a touch of oak. Rounded and ripe on the palate, it shows lovely balanced fruit and tannin structure. There is a hint of spiced berries on the long, elegant finish.

Production Notes

Barco Reale is a younger version of the Carmignano from Capezzana, as the fruit is sourced from slightly younger vines in the same vineyards. Fermentation lasted seven days in temperature controlled stainless steel vats followed by a seven day maceration. The wine was matured in 25 hectolitre Allier oak barrels for 12 months before bottling, followed by three months in bottle before release.
