The late-release 2011 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana 10 Anni is dark and floral, dusty in character, with black cherry and plum offset by hints of camphor and mint. It’s the result of a warm and low-producing vintage, which shows through its depths of silky textures matched by rich dark red fruits and hints of sour citrus. Yet there’s a spike of nervous acidity here that keeps the expression wildly fresh. Tobacco and tart raspberries linger, along with adolescent tannins, making for a nicely framed and mature expression.
