In 1998 Capezzana eliminated its “reserve” wine, thereby bumping up the quality of its DOC Carmignano by leaps and bounds. And the '99 is something to behold. Rich, extracted and jammy it is, with nuances throughout of crème de cassis, coffee, maple and most of all, chocolate. With a finish that coats every corner of your mouth, this Sangiovese (with 20% Cabernet) scores big.
