This wine is named after Alfiero Carpini, the first vineyard worker at Valdipiatta, who had already been working at the estate for 15 years when Giulio Caporali bought the property in the late 1980s. It was Alfiero who taught the history of each vineyard to the Caporali family and planted a small vineyard in Bossona in 1973. After Alfiero passed away, Giulio Caporali honored his memory by producing a wine with the grapes grown in the vineyard that Alfiero had planted 25 years before.
Ruby red in color, the Vigna d’Alfiero has upfront aromas of wild berries and spices, with hints of violets and forest floor. On the palate, this wine is full-flavored and impressive, with spicy flavors, firm tannins, and a long finish.
Pair with spaghetti and meatballs, Bolognese sauces, almond rice pilaf with spiced chicken, or chorizo stuffed pork tenderloin.
