Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa 2017


In Stock

“The Caparzo 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa offers more intensity and depth next to the annata expressions (also tasted in this report). It’s not much, but there is enough of a difference to justify the special single-vineyard selection. Wild fruit, licorice and balsam herb add vertical lift to the bouquet. The magical sharpness and brightness of this wine is linked to the soils of Vigna La Casa, which are blanketed with shards of galestro schist. These soils mitigate the warm growing season. Production is 15,000 bottles. Drink: 2024-2038. 94 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.”
