- On sale!
'Assajè' by Capichera is a strongly territorial red wine, which interprets the Gallura terroir very well, reviving its beauty through a representative and iconic profile. 100% concentrated Carignano, in which fruity and spicy aromas open to a warm and alcoholic sip, very enveloping. The wine is left to rest for 12 months in French oak barrels. Ethereal and vinous, where red fruit and spices alternate with a range of well-orchestrated aromas. Excellent body, round, balanced and full, with a warm sip, characterized by a savory vein and moderate tannins. Label that receives good national and international scores.
The far north of Sardinia sees in Gallura an area particularly suited to viticulture. Here, in the seventies of the last century, the story of the Capichera winery began, thanks to the Ragnedda family who planted new Vermentino vineyards and built a cellar for the production of high quality wines. With a lot of enthusiasm but also with many investments and with a lot of energy, the young brothers Fabrizio and Mario Ragnedda began working in the cellar in the early 1980s, just at the moment when the first bottles of Vermentino with the Capichera label came to be marketed for the first time. Capichera currently distributes its wines internationally, and the original ten hectares of vineyards have become sixty. The quality level has seen a constant and continuous increase and at the same time, while following the path of innovation and experimentation, the typicality of each label is fully protected without compromise. Among the rows, the training system is partly guyot and partly spurred cordon, with some plants also trained as sapling, but above all every agronomic practice is adopted wisely and carefully, so as to ensure that from harvest to harvest the grapes meet the highest quality standards. In the cellar, the most ancient local traditions are admirably combined with the most modern enological technologies, so with the utmost respect for the intrinsic characteristics of the raw material, research and experimentation are continuous and constant. Each wine labeled Capichera is characterized by a great extractive concentration, a high alcoholic strength and a boost of fruit maturity. The result is that, to date, all lovers of Italian wine products know the legendary brothers Mario and Fabrizio, who have contributed in a fundamental way to change, for the better, the face of Sardinian viticulture.
