Capitel Nicalo. Leggero Appassimento 2009

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Flat garnet colour. Not much nose but there's a touch of wood. Well-balanced wine with a hint of autumn coming. Good structure but this is not very meaty nor with lots of body probably because it had only a brief appassimento (30 days) prior to pressing losing approximately 8-10% of its weight. The style is more of restrained elegance. Ageing: 18-24 mths in oak. Grape varieties used: 30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella, Rossignola
