Located south of Montalcino amongst the rolling hills of southern Tuscany, the Caparzo estate dates back to the 1960’s. At this time there were only 13 established wineries in Montalcino. A former derelict farm, the property was rehabilitated by a group of friends who set about planting new grape vines. The name Caparzo derives from the ancient “Ca’ Pazzo”, meaning “a place touched by the sun”. In 1998 the winery was purchased by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, who manages the winery today with her son Igino and daughter Alessandra. Altogether the property stretches across 200 hectares, of which 90 hectares are planted to vine. The current winemaker is Massimo Bracalente.
