Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino (750ml)
Caparzo was established towards the end of the 1960’s. The vineyards of the Caparzo Estate include about. 90 hectares (210 acres) in Montalcino. The estate is located on a hillside area 220 metres above sea level, facing south and south-east. The company has grown and adapted with the times all while maintaining and respecting the traditions of the terroir. The rustic and elegant Caparzo villa, La Casa, located at the bottom of Montalcino is available for rent for those who want to fully experience the beauty and tranquillity of the Tuscan countryside.
The Brunello is aged for 36 months in Slavonia and French oak barrels of 30-50 Hl, then further refined in the bottle for one year. Pronounced aromas and flavours of wild berries, cedar and spice. The wine is full and juicy on the palate, with lots of ripe fruit, herbs and a leathery note. The balanced and integrated acidity and tannin make this a great wine to enjoy with roast meats, game or strong cheeses. You can open this and decant it to enjoy now or cellar for up to ten years.
“Moderately saturated red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries, violet and peppery spices. Sappy, penetrating red/blue fruit flavors pick up spiciness and flintiness with aeration. Finishes very long, with mounting polished tannins and outstanding persistence.” 93pts+ Vinous (Ian d’Agata)
