The Villa di Capezzana di Carmignano DOCG is the most representative historical wine of the winery. We have bottles dated also 1925. A powerful wine with great evolutionary capacity, so much so that a project called 10 years has begun, which consists in storing 3,000 bottles a year to put them back on the market only after 10 years. The goal is to demonstrate the value and longevity that this blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes can give to various connoisseurs of great reds.

Tenuta di Capezzana is an ancient tradition of the Carmignanese company. Carmignano is one of the oldest towns in Tuscany and the history and fame of its wines are linked to the millennial events of this land.
The vine was already cultivated in Etruscan times, about 3,000 years ago, as evidenced by the wine recipients found among the numerous finds. Then came the Roman era: it was written that the same names of some wineries would derive from Roman names of the era of Silla, when the area was divided and given to veterans; Capezzana would take the name of one of these, called Capitus.
In the Florence state archives we found a parchment dated 804: it is a lease contract which documents how already 1200 years ago in Capezzana oil and wine were produced. In the 20s of the last century the Contini Bonacossi family bought Capezzana: currently the management of the company belongs to Count Ugo's sons, who have divided the tasks in the company: Benedetta works in the cellar in close contact with Vittorio, who also takes care of the wine sector together with his son Gaddo; Filippo takes care of the production of oil and the financial part and Beatrice is the commercial and marketing manager of the company, assisted by his niece Serena. Currently the company has a total area of ??670 hectares, of which over 90 are vineyards and 140 are olive groves.
Capezzana is located in the north of Tuscany, in the municipality of Carmignano, in the province of Prato, 20 km from Florence, between the Montalbano and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. This explains the particularity of its microclimate: in summer the days are hot and followed by cool nights and the rainfall is well distributed throughout the year.
