This most austere and deeply expressive of Caspri’s wines takes its name from the Roman general Aelianus Casperius, who resided here at the beginning of the first millennium. It’s a blend of Sangiovese from the old vines of the “Poggio Cuccule” cru and Syrah, which wildly ferment with no temperature control and sees a long elevage in steel. It exhibits wild yet elegant potency, with a decidedly sanguine vibe: dark earth, rum-soaked dark cherries, wild balsamic herbs and crushed violet petals.
