STRONG, ENDURING, STRUCTURED.
The fireplace “capofochi” of the old Umbrian farmhouses, gives the name to a wine that transmits heat, sociality and elegance.
In Capofoco, Gamay del Trasimeno, belonging to the family of the Grenaches and cultivated from more than 400 years on the shores of the Trasimeno lake, is expressed at its' most in combining with Merlot coming from the most ancient vineyards of the Farm and also to a small percentage of Montepulciano, inserted again among the varieties of Madrevite in an expression typical of the enology of central Italy.
Thanks to a refinement in French oak casks, Capofoco is able to develop and endure many years.
