Cavazza Capitel - Italy - $36.69

Cavazza Capitel

A limited production wine, from small vineyard lots of local grape, that reflects the distinctive terroir of the Cavazza family’s estate, and highlights the craftsmanship involved in hands-on
winemaking. Only the best hand-picked grapes from the best years are chosen to be naturally dried, hand-squeezed and bottled to become this unique raisin wine.
