"Caparzo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa opens to a very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond. The wine remains very tight and crisp overall, but it does cede to more volume and puts on more weight as it opens in the glass. There is a pretty note of crushed stone or granite on the close. The La Casa vineyard site is characterized by clay soils broken up with shards of Galestro schist that adds to the cool and fresh profile of the wine. This lovely single-vineyard Brunello is almost ready to drink (wait a few more years), but it should also withstand the next 10 years of cellar aging should you decide to put your bottle aside. Some 15,000 bottles were produced. The wine was bottled in August 2019 and released in January 2020. Drink: 2021-2035. 95 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."
