In 1982, Time magazine gave their man of the year award to a computer, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller'' was released and Paolo Cianferoni took over his father’s centuries-old vineyard. Big Year! Organic practicing, mostly because he is raising his five children in his country house in the center of the vineyard, Paolo’s Chianti could not be further from your every-day Chianti. While this Caparsa is technically his “regular”, non-riserva Chianti Classico, made from 100% Sangiovese, the juice has been fermented and aged in concrete tanks. This creates a smooth and highly enjoyable mouthfeel, helping to focus our attention on the complexity of the red-fruit flavours and dried herb perfume.

This medium-bodied Chianti Classico is pretty, silky and has a fragrant bouquet of dried flowers, oregano and sweet tobacco with bright verve and acidity on the palate.
