Tenuta San Jacopo Caprilius, IGT Tuscany, Italy

A fuller, richer and delicious Italian organic red wine with a ruby red colour that excites the senses. With intense red fruits, offering a richness thats harmoniously balanced with balsamic.

The wine dances on the tongue with a complexity and full bodied flavours of the same red fruits and balsamic, yet with surprisingly smaller tannins. Its gracious elegance, simplicity and long finish presents an inspiring red wine which is just delightful.
