Item Description

Consistent from vintage to vintage. Great value. Full-bodied and bursting with fresh red berries with a hint of dark chocolate and spice. A perfect match with mature cheeses, braised short ribs, or grilled meats.

The grapes are harvested from vineyards located in the Capaccio-Paestum area of Campania in the province of Salerno , in the middle of the Cilento National Park. The grapes are softly crushed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for eight months in tank before bottling. Organic practices.

La Capranera, located in Campania, focuses on making wine from sustainably-farmed indigenous grape varieties. La Capranera, which translates to "black goat" in Italian, is named for the breed of goats - cilentana nera - that graze in the national park near where the grapes for these wines are grown. Once on the verge of becoming extinct, the goats have had a resurgence in population, just as wines from Campania have recently enjoyed increased visibility internationally. The wines are made from three ancient, local grape varieties: Fiano, Falanghina, and Aglianico and are harvested from vineyards located in the Capaccio-Paestum area of Campania in the middle of the Cilento National Park. The Tyrrhenian Sea is located just a few miles away and has a moderating effect on the climate of this region, producing excellent wines of exceptional ripeness and balance.

Capranera is a project designed to produce, from young local autochthonous vines of San Salvatore 1988, organic wines at an affordable price. Aglianico, fiano and falanghina are Cilento in bottles, modern wines with a brilliant, easy-to-drink and strongly territorial bouquet that, like the name of the animal, they are in their ease in every situation.
