NOTES The "Dunant" of Selva Capuzza is a classic wine from the Garda area, made with a blend of red berried grapes typical of the area. The expressive finesse of the indigenous Groppello grape is combined with three varieties historically present on the Brescia side and in the area south of the lake, Sangiovese, which gives structure and body, Marzemino, which gives delicately fruity aromas and Barbera, which enlivens the wine with its exuberant freshness. The result is a balanced and harmonious red, which thanks to a partial aging in wood, retains a typically fruity profile, but with some pleasant more mature and complex notes.
