Description

The Chianti Classico of Podere Capaccia is aged for one year in large barrels to ensure that the delicate fruity notes are not covered by the tannins of the wood. The goal is to create a wine that reflects the Radda in Chianti terroir and has the structure to evolve for a long time.

Podere Capaccia is located on a hill overlooking the Pesa valley in the municipality of Radda in Chianti. The buildings that make up Capaccia are the ruins of a medieval village dating back to the 12th and 14th centuries. After the Second World War and with the end of sharecropping, the small village was abandoned and only at the beginning of the 70s it came back to life until it became a cult among lovers of Chianti Classico thanks to the Pacini family.

The estate is experiencing another renaissance with newly renovated vineyards and the construction of a new winery. The future of Podere Capaccia is in the hands of the Belgian owner Herman de Bode.

On the other hand, the position of Podere Capaccia is ideal for producing great wines. The soils are mainly made up of sandstone, limestone and schist. This allows an exceptional drainage in case of heavy rains and pushes the vines to search deeply with their roots for the right nourishment.

With an altitude of 550 meters above sea level, temperatures cool down at night even during the hottest period of summer, this allows for a slow and balanced ripening of the fruit. With a southern exposure, the vineyards are able to receive all the sunlight necessary to ensure that the grapes reach perfect ripeness.
