The Prize

Bottle of Chianti Rosso, 1953 - Giovanni Cappelli.

Content: 1 pint and 7FL
Volume: 12%

This wine, like all vintage wines in general, is subject to a multitude of variables that condition aging with the passing of time so as not to guarantee its drinkability.

Vintage wine is not to be considered as a product to be tasted, but as an emotion that brings with it the memories of a past time. It is first and foremost a valuable collector's item and, later, if you are lucky, a wine to savor.

Towards the end of the 19th century, great-grandfather Ferdinando Cappelli began trading wine by taking it from local farmers and delivering it to families and shops in characteristic demijohns on his horse-drawn cart. His son Mario carried on business, adding a characteristic straw bottle, and then passed it down to Giovanni.

The estate was later equipped with a bottling plant, taking it up to its fourth generation and Davide Cappelli. Trading activity has expanded and the company ships to  Florence and across Italy.

Please note: Preserved professionally for over 50 years in a special cellar, this is a collector's bottle, therefore the quality of the wine cannot be guaranteed.
