Cellar for up to 12 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Only produced in the finest vintages, this elegant Brunello is made with top quality fruit from four exceptional vineyards, its namesake Caparzo, La Caduta, Il Cassero and San Piero Caselle. The grapes are given a long maceration and fermentation to extract plenty of flavour and tannins from the skins followed by 3 years of ageing in large Slavonian and French oak casks. The final touch is another year of ageing in the bottle before it's deemed ready for release.

The result is a classic style Brunello with an almost brick red hue thanks to the long ageing process and maturity of the wine. On the nose there are seductive hints of wild berries, sunbaked earth, dried violets and woodsmoke from the oak ageing. The silky smooth tannins and well-built structure are complemented by a medium body and a long finish seasoned with spice and tobacco leaf. Cellar for a few more years or enjoy now with hearty dishes like venison, rabbit, porcini mushrooms and meat stews.

The producer Caparzo is one of Montalcino’s 30 historic wineries which have helped put the region on the map for top quality wine. In 1998 the estate was acquired by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini who has invested heavily in restoring the vineyards and modernising the winery facilities to return Caparzo to its former glory.
