The Doccio a Matteo 2006 is a compelling wine done in a decidedly old-school leaning style. The wine shows how excellent Sangiovese character with what some bottle age from Caparsa can do.
The Chianti Classico “Doccio a Matteo” Riserva 2006 is the expression of a balanced vintage. The selection of Sangiovese harvested in the homonymous vineyard with Colorino and Ancelotta make this wine unique. Purple color, light but full-bodied at the same time, perfect ripe crisp, light wood but in dissolution, remarkable synthesis between tradition and modernity Once again, Caparsa offers its admirers an elegant local wine, an expression of the vintage, without manipulation and forcing.
