Made from 100% Fiano, Il Capriccio della Marchesa is an elegant and aromatic white wine. Its elegance comes from a short stay in oak barrique, which also makes this a long-lived wine suitable for ageing. Aromas of exotic fruit, orange, almond, and honey fill the nose. These aromas sit lovingly alongside flavours of peach, passion fruit, and bergamot. On the palate, it's soft and dense with a pleasant acidic note and aromatic persistence. Drink now to 2030.
The Fiano vines used to make the delightful and elegant Il Capriccio della Marchesa are around 15 years old and grow in soils of calcareous sand and clay. The grapes are left to overripen on the vine before being harvested by hand. Fermentation takes place in large French oak barrique. The wine is then left to mature on fine lees before being aged in the bottle.
Cantina La Marchesa, Puglia
Cantina La Marchese began life in 1988 when Marika and Sergio embarked on realising their dream of winemaking. Their vineyards span 15 hectares within 300 metres of their cellar. This proximity of the vineyards to the cellars allows them to move the grapes to the cellar very quickly after cutting, helping to preserve all the grape's aromas.
Fiano is an ancient grape from southern Italy and has been cultivated since at least Roman times. As with many low yielding grapes, Fiano fell out of favour after the phylloxera crisis but was rescued from near extinction by the Mastroberardino family, who recognised the high quality of this indigenous variety. Fiano is typically used to make varietal wines with characteristic aromas of wildflowers, honey, and spice and flavours of apricot, peach, lemon, fresh herbs, nuts, along with mineral notes on a long finish. Expect big, complex, elegant, and refined wines from Fiano.
