Yum. Vivid and fresh with a plum and cherry character, as well as citrus and watermelon undertones. Full body, silky and polished tannins and a long, beautiful finish. Shows grace and attraction. Drink or hold.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is another compelling wine from Capraia. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather, licorice, chocolate, spice and menthol infuse the 2016 with striking breadth, texture and creaminess. Powerful and also mysterious, with much still left to be said, Capraia's 2015 Riserva is simply fabulous. Don't miss it!

A broad yet supple red, this displays pure cherry flavors, with underbrush, earth and wild herb accents. Tips toward the astringent side in the balance, maintaining a beam of fruit on the finish.

Tenuta di Capraia Riserva is a deep ruby red wine. Its complex and sophisticated aroma reminds of fruits on a first step, gradually opening up and displaying spices and liquorice. On the palate it is fleshy, harmonious and full-bodied, with a long persistence.
