Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino opens slowly in the glass, yet it is worth the wait as a dusty blend of dried flowers, cedar shavings, wild strawberries, and spice emerges over time. It’s silky and enveloping with fresh acidity and pretty wild berry fruits that gain in sweetness as they travel across the palate. It finishes long and staining yet still lively and spry, leaving a coating of fine tannins and licorice hints that resonate under an air of violet inner florals. The 2019 is a lovely interpretation of northern Montalcino fruit. Drinking window: 2025-2035. 93 points

The most recent vintages at Caparzo display a new energy and lightness of being without sacrificing intensity and ageability. While the annata bottling makes for a beautiful introduction to the brand and a great value, the Vigna La Casa, all Montosoli fruit, displays added dimension and depth imparted by this noble site. Years ago, these wines were more dried out, yet global warming is working to their advantage. That said, each wine spends just two years maturing in large Slavonian botti.”
