Growing Season: "2017 was one of the most challenging vintages in our history. As we are at low altitude, we have more trouble in very dry and hot summers, which is exactly what we faced in 2017. In this year we only made Casa del Capo, using our best grapes that would normally go into our top wines. Therefore we managed once more to make an excellent, fresh, fruity and drinkable Casa del Capo."
Winemaking Team Notes: "Our experience in the vineyards increases every year, as does the level of tannin ripeness we achieve. This also means we can dare a little more each year in terms of yields. In fact we have come to the conclusion that it is almost better to allow the vigour in our vineyards to blow off steam, rather than cut back excessively. The result are softer, easier wines, more suited to the current consumer taste.
'Casa del Capo' is our everyday Super Tuscan. Wonderfully fresh and drinkable with an aromatic touch, it’s main feature is the wonderful Sangiovese red-cherry fruit which is why one glass is never enough!"
