Selva Capuzza is in the heart of the battlefield of the most cruel of the italian wars of independence, the battle of San Martino and Solferino and it was here, in 1859, that 30000 soldiers died. Henry Dunant, a Swiss humanitarian, was horrified by what he saw in the immediate aftermath and wrote 'A memory from Solferino'. His publications led to the establishment of both the International Red Cross and Geneva Convention and, in 1901, he jointly received the inaugural Nobel Peace Prize.
The wine names in his honour is a blend of Groppello, Barbera, Marzemino and
Sangiovese, fermented and aged in stainless steel, with fresh berry fruit and
medium bodied palate.
