ABOUT THE WINE
The Capanna farm, owned by the Cencioni family since 1957, is situated in the Montosoli area, to the north of Montalcino. It was founded by Giuseppe Cencioni and his sons, Benito and Franco, and was one of the first estates to form part of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation. The family still manages both viticulture and winemaking on the estate. Their approach is very classic, with structured, powerful reds and intense, complex whites in a traditional, sweet style.
An intense golden colour. The nose is characteristic of the Muscat grape, with intense aromas of acacia honey, apricots, pears, ripe grapes and candied fruit; extremely persistent. A lovely, balanced sweetness coats the palate, with fresh acidity carrying the delightfully complex flavours, with a hint of burnt toffee on the finish.
Biscuits, mature cheese or cheese with herbs; honey-based desserts or light cakes for a sweet pairing.
An unusual wine, given the fame of, and demand for, the red Brunello wines from this region; white vineyards are often replanted to Sangiovese, making wines like this increasingly rare, especially on export markets like the UK.
