It is now over 10 years that Caparsa receives the snail, recognition for those companies that operate in tune with the Slow Food feeling: Good, Clean and Fair.
This is the center of everything: to make wine trying to respect the environment, in the most natural way possible and with the right wages for the employees.
Wine is not only the liquid inside the bottle, but it represents a world and a way of understanding life that can be a school. It is certainly the last agriculture not completely in the hands of agroindustry, it is certainly a bulwark of traditions of the territories that in harmony with nature and food means, even in the induced business, a very important value especially in Italy, so rich in beauties and cultural differences.
In my life as a winemaker, I have always tried to give an alternative message to certain invasive practices in the vineyard and in the cellar, even with wines that are fluctuating from a technical point of view but always referable to the essence of the vintages. These differences are the heart of the amateur and I must admit that, also thanks to Slow Wine, I feel at peace with what I have done and for what I will do, and I sincerely thank the collaborations of so many people who somehow revolved and still revolve around Caparsa with whom, together, we have grown and we will grow again with the same commitment as always.
Two words about the awarded wine: Chianti Classico 2018 Caparsa. Here, you can really feel the presence of Fernando Pardini as coordinator of the guide for the Region of Tuscany who replaced the excellent Fabio Pracchia. Fernando loves fine wines, drinkable even in quantity, without external "weights", without frills. A line followed, in my opinion, also in other awarded wines. I wonder what will happen to the manufacturers of wooden barrels...
Finally, a special thank you to Giancarlo Gariglio and Fabio Giavedoni, the pioneer editors of the guide who with passion every year succeed in making this publication, an authoritative reference among thousands-and-one guides of the field.
