Last year, top Italian wine critic Antonio Galloni at Vinous wrote: "I was quite frankly blown away by the wines I tasted from Caparsa this year. Proprietor Paolo Cianferoni and his family craft deep, soulful wines loaded with character. The straight Chianti Classico (done mostly in cement) will give readers a terrific idea of the house style"

Chianti Classico 2019 Caparsa is the base wine of Caparsa, which is not to say that it is of inferior quality to the other types. It has a pleasantly acidic thorn, typical of Caparsa wines, over which elegant tannins wrap themselves, making the wine fresh and full of vitality.
