Capanna winery

Where it all started

From the land to the vineyards

Capanna currently has 20 hectares of vineyards planted in bilateral spurred cordon with Sangiovese, Merlot, and Pinot Grigio grapevines selected from the very best clones and ancient white Moscato rootstock dating back to the 16th century.

The vineyards, spread mostly around Montosoli hill (one of the historic cru of Montalcino), enjoy a very special micro-climate and are planted at an altitude of between 250 and 300 meters above sea level in soil that is predominantly clay (galestro) and skeleton-rich. Our vineyards are cared for using innovative agricultural practices aimed at improving the ecosystem.

Our methodology, combined with the favorable characteristics of the climate and terrain, guarantee the production of wines that have excellent structure and good acidity and that are fruity and long-lasting.

A winery between the past and the future

Our wine cellar is ancient and has retained all the style and architectural elements that are typically found in the Tuscan countryside. It includes an inviting tasting room and a large area for fermentation where we use traditional truncated-conical vats made from Slavonian oak in the production of our Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. The winery continues with a splendid basement wine cellar which has traditional oak casks used for aging which happens in the charming stone gallery as well as in the original rooms that have been carefully restored over the years.

Side-by-side with tradition we have introduced cutting edge technology, for example: temperature control in every phase of transformation and the automatic pump-over system. All the historic rooms, just like the rooms for bottling, labeling, packaging and storage, are temperature controlled to have constant and optimal conditions to ensure the perfect preservation of our wines.
