Podere Selva Capuzza
Buongiorno dal podere Selva Capuzza!
We are proud to announce that our hundred’s harvest wines are about to leave the cellar in the next weeks.
The “Chiaretto San Donino” is already available, while “Lugana San Vigilio” will debut in february.
“Groppello San Biagio” and San Martino della Battaglia “Campo del Soglio” will be ready between springtime and summer.
“Lugana Selva” will be introduced between june and september, at the correct aging time.
Regarding ” Dunant 2017″ , the aging time is around one year, while “Mader” should be ready in 2020, just like “Lugana Riserva Menasasso”.
Between 2018 and 2020 we will celebrate our hundred’s harvest with a surprise, a new unrealeased wine among the Selva Capuzza bottles.
The 2017 harvest was marked by a warm and dry summer, with a considerable flow of air thanks to the position of the vineyards on the famous “cap” (Cappuccio) which gives the name to our Selva.
The ripening of the grapes was healthy and independent, with few human interference in the vineyard as we had very little parassite issues.
Luck was on our side, leaving us aside the metereological problems that hit the area and some of our collegues; the production has been reduced only due to the high temperatures.
The quality of these wines make us proud and glad: the white wines will have again our preferred alcoholic percentage, not over 13%, they will be fresh and crispy, with a perfect balance of nose and mouth. “Chiaretto”
astonished us with its elegance and body, and last but not least, with its beautiful colour.
It is too early to judge the red wines, as soon as “Groppello” will be ready, we will understand the personality they may express this year.
Our hundred’s harvest is among the best of the last twenty years, we are happy to celebrate it with you.
