Capannino Castello del Terriccio
Brand Castello del Terriccio
Capannino takes its name from an estate on the farm where the show horse stables are. It is the first wine produced at Terriccio and is made of Merlot. Fermentation and a 6 month ageing take place in stainless steel, followed by a short period in oak barrels.
Ruby red in appearance, with notes of eucalyptus on the nose, the palate unfolds with a balanced combination of red fruits, bitter cherries and violets. Beautifully structured, with velvety tannins, this is a savoury yet fresh red, elegant but approachable. Ideally this is a wine to be drunk young, but can be aged for a couple of years to develop the secondary characteristics further.
