Capannelle: the extraordinary Tuscany of Chianti and the elegant prestige of Solare and 50 & 50
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, November 16th, 2017
Established in 1974 by Raffaele Rossetti and now run by James B. Sherwood, Capannelle is one of the main protagonists of Chianti Classico and Tuscan wines, one of the most notable wineries of worldwide wine scene, in particular for the renowned wine Solare and the iconic 50 & 50, created in 1988 with the collaboration of Avignonesi winery. The event dedicated to Capannelle has in fact been a unique occasion for understanding and knowing the prestigious results achieved by the winery of Gaiole in Chianti, culminated with a short vertical tasting of Solare - vintaged 2007 and 2011 - and 50 & 50 2013, one of the most renowned and celebrated wines of Tuscany. To the event took part dr. Manuele Verdelli - sales manager of Capannelle - telling the fascinating story of the Tuscan winery and the philosophy distinguishing since its foundation the style and interpretation of wines and territory. The evening has started with the only white of the tasting - Chardonnay 2014 - produced with this grape and in part aged in barrique - giving the senses a wine of refined elegance in which are perfectly fused a lively crispness and the complexity given by wood. the event proceeds with the second wine of the evening, emblem of the territory of Gaiole: Chianti Classico Riserva 2013 produced with Sangiovese and aged in cask. A beautiful wine in which is majestically expressed the lively elegance of Sangiovese, a symphony of aromas directly recalling the typical expression of this variety and the territory of Gaiole in Chianti. The event continues with the fascinating vertical tasting of Solare vintages 2011 and 2007. Produced with Sangiovese and a small part of Malvasia Nera, the flagship wine of Capannelle - made by Simone Monciatti, wine maker of this winery since 1984 - confirms to be a top wine of Italian enology. Participants could appreciate the differences betwee the two vintages and how this can affect the character of a wine, as well as the contribution of time capable of giving unique complexity and personality. Moreover, the important contribution of Malvasia Nera del Chianti grape which, found in this wine for about 20%, gives a rare personality and elegance, an essential role for the expression of Solare. The last wine of the evening has been the renowned 50 & 50 2013, iconic wine of Italian enology, created from the collaboration of Capannelle and Avignonesi, respectively contributing with Sangiovese and Merlot, a successful union repeating, vintage after vintage, since 1988. The evening ended with Grappa di Chianti Classico, produced with Sangiovese pomace and made precious by the exclusive and beautiful bottle expressly designed for Capannelle by the great Italian designer Massimo Vignelli. A distillate originating from the alembic of distilleria Alboni at Colle di Val d'Elsa, in province of Siena, expressing an impeccable finesse and pleasing roundness. The sensorial tasting of Capannelle wines has been conducted by Antonello Biancalana - DiWineTaste chief editor - creating, as usual, the dishes paired to the wines and distillate of the evening and cooked by the kitchen staff of Locanda dei Golosi led by Chef Emiliano Buccolini.
