"Caparzo is one of two properties in Montalcino owned by the beautiful and charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. The other property is Altesino. This wine, the Caparzo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a very classic interpretation that delivers the goods without any distracting bells or whistles. The wine opens to red and purple fruit aromas with background tones of dried herb, potting soil, cedar wood and light spice. Fruit comes from a site with heavier clay soils, and you get hints of that extra density and richness here. This vintage offers all you need in a model Brunello from a very beautiful and generous vintage. I always admire the wines of Caparzo for their accessible and immediate drinking style. Some 160,000 bottles were corked in August 2019, and the wine hit the market in January 2020. Drink: 2021-2030. 93 points

Caparzo has skipped over production of the 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, joining the majority of its peers in doing so. The estate also recently made new vineyard acquisitions, and these additional vines will enter production this year. At present, the Caparzo property measures 200 hectares, with 90 hectares of vines, four hectares of olive trees, 19 hectares of grain and 87 hectares of forest. This site sees mostly clay soils (with vineyards positioned between 250 and 400 meters above sea level) that contribute the the fruit-forward, accessible and sweet richness of the wines."
