The Tenuta Capezzana estate is divided into three parts and incorporates more than 120 métayage farms, producing high quality wine and oil. Today, Capezzana is in the almost unique position of having bottles dating back to the 1925 vintage.
Capezzana is situated in northern Tuscany, in the commune of Carmignano in the province of Prato, 20 km from Florence, on the slopes of Monte Albano and close to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. The location describes the uniqueness of its climate, the altitude (approximately 200 m above sea level) is such that daytime temperatures in the summer are high, where as nights are cool, due to the winds off the Apennines. These conditions ensure healthy maturation of the grapes, which are generally one to two weeks ahead of other Tuscan wine-growing regions.
The Tenuta Capezzana estate comprises 670 hectares, of which approximately 100 are vineyards and 140 olive groves. The estate is home to a Renaissance Villa with adjacent farm, historic cellars beneath this complex (which date to the 16th century), a modern olive mill and a huge “Vinsantaia” (where Vin Santo grapes are dried), above the cellar. The “Tinaia” (fermentation cellar), was built in 1938 by architect, Giovanni Michelucci.
