Tenuta di Capezzana
Capezzana’s wines have never been better. They have a purity and freshness of flavour that shines through in the glass, and a suppleness on the palate that yields great pleasure. The younger generation of the Contini Bonacossi family is now firmly in charge of this estate, with daughter Benedetta Contini Bonacossi as winemaker.

The estate of Capezzana, situtated in the Carmignano DOCG and owned and run by the Conti Contini Bonacossi, has 12 centuries of wine-making history, based on one of the oldest existing documents on wine production.

It dates back to 804 and states that the villa of Capezzana was rented together with its "vineyards and olive groves". The vineyards, which cover 100 hectares in Carmignano, 24 kilometres north west of Florence, have been farmed organically since 2009.

Barco Reale was the biggest property belonging to the Medici Grand Dukes, and the Capezzana estate was part of this property. It was 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.
