The origins of the place name Caparzo are still unknown. According to some people, the name is derived, as shown by ancient maps, from Ca? Pazzo; according to others, the term should derive from the Latin Caput Arsum, indicating a ?place touched by sun?. The history of Caparzo dates back to the end of the sixties at the dawning of Brunello di Montalcino, when a group of friends, fond of Tuscany and of wine, purchased an old ruin with vineyards at Montalcino. The farm estate was renovated, modernized, and new vineyards were planted. In a short time, Caparzo made itself known in the Brunello market. In 1998, thirty years after the first rows of vines were planted, the farm estate came to a turning point when Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini purchased Caparzo. With the help of her son, Igino, and daughter, Alessandra, she immediately carried out her objective: combining tradition with innovation to create a high-quality wine that is the expression of an excellent territory.
Quite dark ruby red. Fruity, with a rich, fresh and evocative bouquet, this wine has good body, harmony and persistence and is ideal for moderate aging.
