The 2005 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana possesses notable beauty. Dark cherries, licorice, tar and smoke all emerge as this wine reveals superb depth and elegance. This deceptively medium-bodied red is packed with flavor and should drink well for the next few years.

Wine jars and tasting cups found in Etruscan tombs dating to approximately 1,000 BC show that vines have been cultivated in Carmignano since Pre Roman times. More specifically, a parchment rent contract conserved in the Florence State Archives, dated 804, reveals that vines and olives were cultivated at Capezzana for the production of oil and wine as early as 1,200 years ago. At the beginning of the Twentieth century, Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi returned to Italy from Spain with his wife Vittoria and two children Augusto Alessandro and Vittorina. While in Spain he was highly successful in the antique trade and began what was to become one of the largest private collections of paintings, furniture, ceramics and statues. After the war and with a University degree in farm management, son Ugo joined his father in reconstructing the winemaking business at Capezzana and gradually took over. From the very start he was a firm believer in the quality of the wines produced in this region and set out to improve his wines at a time when the majority of producers still sold their wines by weight.
