Capannaresults 1-1 of 1
The Capanna farm, owned by the Cencioni family since 1957, is situated north of Montalcino in the Montosoli area, which has always been considered one of the best "crus" of Brunello. The farm is administered exclusively by the family, operating according to tradition but also taking into consideration modern technology that can help raise the quality of the product. An area of about 12 hectares is cultivated as a vineyard, and the other 11 hectares as an olive-grove. Its magnificent position and the stony soil, together with the dry and airy climate, allows Capanna to form a Brunello wine that is graceful and elegant, suitable for a long maturing process.

The favorable natural factors are enhanced by the pruning of the grapes (which guarantees a high quality product even in less favorable years), the selection of grapes during the harvest, the careful winemaking at controlled temperatures and the selection during the maturing process. In fact, only a part of the production (aged for four years in Slavonian oak barrels) is destined to become Brunello DOCG, while the other part becomes Rosso di Montalcino DOC (after a maturing process of two years) or Rosso da Tavola (a red table wine). During the best vintage years the best Brunello barrels are destined for Riserva and bottled after five years. When bottled, the wine is also refined for a few months.
