The Capezzana estate, 24 kilometres north west of Florence, is owned by the Contini Bonacossi family...he younger generation is now firmly in charge of the estate’s 100 hectares of vineyard, with daughter Benedetta Contini Bonacossi as winemaker. Stefano Chioccioli is the estate’s consultant winemaker. The wines and the olive oil have an elegance which marks this estate out from the crowd. Barco Reale was the biggest property belonging to the Medici Grand Dukes and the Capezzana estate was part of this property. Surrounded by a wall 50 kilometres long and 2 metres high, in 1716, Grand Duke Cosimo III de’ Medici issued a decree (Decretu motu Proprio) which effectively demarcated the Carmignano zone.
