Sold Out

The Prince of Montepulciano wanted to throw a party, it was a Friday night and he felt like kicking back after a tiring week of abusing the concept of divine right. He sent invitations to all the winemakers of Tuscany because he rightly knew, they party the hardest. All but Capoverso, a beautiful winemaker who was subjugated by some step sisters.

Her godmother or whatever allowed Capoverso to go to the party, she took her finest bottle of wine with her. The Prince sampled the rich bouquet of sour cherry, roasted almonds and coffee on a harmoniously structured body and immediately fell in love. However, Capoverso had to leave the party early, to the great distress of the Prince.

He hunted high and low trying to find the wine he had tasted the previous night eventually arriving at the Capoverso winery. He declared, “I am your Prince and wish to buy all of your wine!” Capoverso responded “you might be a Prince, but I live in an anarcho-syndicalist commune and all the people deserve this wine, not just you, you selfish git!” The story spread, and the wine colloquially became known as the noble wine of Montepulciano!
The estate was founded in 2000 but the family’s history in wine making has much older history, likely dating back to the 15th century. Capoverso currently produce about 40.000 bottles on 7,5 Ha (plus 3Ha raising).

The wines are based on drinkability and freshness, without sacrificing the structure. That's why the use of wood is always limited, they use third passage tonneaux or, for the Vino Nobile, traditional 50Hl barrels. This allows them to both limit the costs and to avoid the impact of the wood.

Manual harvest takes place in October, with a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard; vinification with maceration on the skins for 18\20 days. During fermentation special attention is given to pumping over that are done manually and at the given temperature. Then the new wine is transferred to 50 hl oak barrels for about 12\16 months, followed by ageing in the bottle.
