TN : Ghiaie della Furba 2005, Rosso di Toscana, IGT, Tenuta di Capezzana, Conte Contini Bonacossi, Carmignano, Italy

The winery was created in 1979 by Ugo and Vittorio Contini Bonacossi. The first vineyard, made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, was situated on the pebbly, alluvial soil of the Furba stream, after which the wine is named. In 1992 the S. Alessandro vineyard (entirely Cabernet Sauvignon) became productive and the wine's blend of grape varieties was modified. In 1998, Syrah grapes were added. This wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 20% Syrah. The wine has spent 14 months in French oak.

This wine was imported by Vinobele AB.
