Selva Capuzza

The Selva Capuzza estate is located 6 km south of Lake Garda and it sits in the heart of the two main DOC areas of Garda Classico and Lugana. The 50 hectare farm is owned and managed by the Formentini family and today produces some of the most interesting white and red wines on the Brescia side of the Garda Lake.

The entry level Lugana is pure and refined with classic floral character well supported by the lively, mineral acidity. The Lugana Riserva is simply one of the best expressions of the Trebbiano di Lugana grape that we have ever tasted. It offers precise and mature floral notes and yellow fruits on the nose with a round, complex palate that is very long and clean. The Campo del Soglio is made from 100% Friulano and displays rich and full body character without compromising on drinkability. The two balanced and refined red wines are classic examples of the medium-bodied wines of the Garda. The Groppello is bright and lively with raspberry fruit, and new to the range is the pale and fresh Chiaretto Garda Classico Rosé.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(Chiaretto Rosé San Donino 2020) "Tangy and delightful, this savory blend of Groppello, Barbera, Marzemino and Sangiovese has aromas of wild red berries and botanical herbs. On the bright, easy-drinking palate, crisp acidity accompanies juicy red cherry, white peach and tangy saline notes before closing on a hint of white pepper." 91 points,  Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast (July 2022)
