Our pride is working only with native grape varieties

True History

Selva Capuzza is a 124-acres (50-hectares) family run estate producing wines in three distinct DOC appellations: Lugana, San Martino della Battaglia, and Garda Classico. The three DOCs overlap in this area. This is the only winery in the area which produces all three of these DOCs.

The Formentini family is proud for working only with native grape varieties – you won’t find any Merlot or Chardonnay here! The white varieties are Turbiana (which is the principal grape in Lugana) and Tuchì (for San Martino della Battaglia). The red and rosé wines are made from: Groppello, Sangiovese, Barbera and Marzemino.

The estate’s wines are all made in the cellar, situated between Cascina Capuzza and Borgo San Donino agriturismo. It was built on purpose in 2001 to accommodate all the phases of winemaking, from the pressing of the grapes through the vinification and aging to bottling.

All our wines are made by a team led by Luca Formentini, with the help of a cellarman, a winemaker and an agronomist.

Cellar visits and tastings are possible by appointment. All of Selva Capuzza’s wines are available for tasting and can be bought from the Wine Shop at Cascina Capuzza.

THE LOGO

The design is obtained from the most aged and decorative element we can find in “ Cascina Capuzza”. It's about a portal of stone, maybe of XVI century, it is present on the external wall with a keybrick which has a bas-relief of two flowers upside down from each other. There are also two curvy lines closed in a curl which separates them.

Two lateral beams have more simple decoration, some wavy lines which maybe represent the water.

It's difficult to understand if the reference was for the lake or because of the presence of many of them well round the farmhouse.
