Selva Capuzza is a winery that witnesses the value of all-round work, as it fully represents the identity of a territory. Beautiful landscapes, culture and history are also the structural foundations of Selva Capuzza’s identity. Its restaurant, agritourism and reception are then enriched by the range of wines produced mainly with historic and native grapes.
We tasted the Mader, Riviera del Garda Rosso Superiore, a wine which in our opinion is a true testimonial of Selva Capuzza’s philosophy.
In fact, in this wine you can feel the whole history of the decades-old vineyards that make it up, a real puzzle of harmony, balance and identity. The color of this wine is very intense but tilting the glass, the brilliant notes on violet tones demonstrate its freshness and the ability to be a long-lived wine.
The skilful work in the cellar does not bring out notes of wood on the nose but of licorice and well-assembled spices, then opening up to a panorama of red fruit, jam, flowers and dried fruit.
The olfactory amplitude is then also found on the palate, rich, aromatic, with a good structure and with well-balanced tannins, despite being produced from vines where the tannin is well dominant.
In fact, its length has its real strong point in the mineral notes and overall softness.
We tasted this superior red with a tenderloin wrapped in bacon and mustard sauce to be able to witness all the complexity and richness of this delicious wine.
Selva Capuzza is a small farm dedicated to producing wines exclusively from 6 indigenous grape varieties. The Estate is located 4 km south of Lake Garda’s coast in a very precious area where three wine appellations overlap each other: Garda Classico, San Martino della Battaglia and Lugana. Here the climate in gentle, and moderated by the lake, there are many olive trees, a wood which was an old truffle plantation, wide open spaces dedicated to biodiversity, a park with mulberry trees and two little ponds.
