Description
 
Wine producer in Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, extends over about 20 hectares (16 of Vineyard) and produces about 80.000 bottles of wine a year. Situated in the heart of the Gaiole in Chianti hillsides, the Capannelle winery has been one of the most interesting realities on the Italian wine market since 1975. The owner is James B. Sherwood. The history of Capannelle wine producing dates back to 1974,when Raffaele Rossetti, a 40 year old business man in Rome, decided to purchase an old XVI century farmhouse in the heart of Chianti. The pride of the cellar is the Caveau, realized insteel with modern systems of control for emperature and humidity.

Capannelle hits all the high marks with the 2010 Solare. This is among the best editions ever produced. I wouldn't say that the nose is pristine, because it is not. Instead, it offers lots of charm and character with dark fruit and spice that are nicely contrasted against one another. The finish reveals a crisp vein of acidity. Solar shows a bright and sunny personality that underlines its Tuscan charm. Wine Advocate 93
