I don’t know why this wine is named Capucine. Was it named after the French actress who lives about an hour away? Or Refuge Capucine, a dog shelter near the winery? Or the local bistro sharing the name? No idea.
Regardless, this a great dinner-at-home wine. Round and a bit dirty, this bottle is a go-to for pizza and BBQ in my house. Many wines from this part of France show their Roman roots, and this one is no different. While it may be sacrilege in South Philly, this bottle works particularly well with Italian gravy.
