About This Wine
The Caposaldo winery was created to honor the most famous racing horse of the Circus Maximus.
During Emperor Nero's Roman Empire reign, the aforementioned horse ran an astounding 4,000 races over a 24-year period, winning an amazing 1,500 times. Nero anointed the horse "Caposaldo," and today, that name represents the artisanal approach to winemaking that is embraced by Antonio Fattori.
A small boutique producer in Italy's Veneto DOC, Fattori crafts his Caposaldo Pinot Grigio from grapes grown on select hillside vineyards that are no more than 20 minutes from the cellar. Fattori oversees three of those vineyards, while the others are farmed by long-time trusted friends. All are well-drained and composed of clay, rock and basalt.
The 2007 Caposaldo Pinot Grigio is pale straw in color, floral in aroma and delicate in structure... and it won't disappoint at the "finish line." Like the legendary horse for which it's named, the wine is a winner in every way.
