Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016


In Stock

“The Caparzo 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is delicious with lots of pretty intensity, nicely balanced fruit, blackberry, spice, cedarwood and campfire ash. This is a delicately perfumed wine that offers more power and length than you might initially anticipate. That’s the secret soul of the 2016 vintage—elegance and brawn wrapped tightly together in one package. Some 15,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2024-2040. 95 points

Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini is back on the wine trail following these years of COVID-19 lockdowns. With her usual energy and special simpatia, she’s working hard to create identities for the single vineyards she farms, such as Caparzo’s Vigna La Casa and Altesino’s Montosoli. I should be able to report more on these two sites in a few months (with a special video spotlight I hope to prepare). Stay tuned.”
