    Wine Advocate Notes
    94 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “I tasted the Capanna 2016 Brunello di Montalcino side by side with the estate's 2015 Riserva and found that these two wines illustrate the vintage differences with clarity. This wine, the so-called "classic Brunello" from the slightly cooler vintage, is immediately more direct and expressive in terms of its bouquet. Aromas of cherry, earthy spice and rosemary essence are lifted and buoyant. However, the mouthfeel is surely more compact and tannic compared to the softer 2015 Riserva. What this wine lacks in texture, it delivers in terms of length and finish. It ages in Slavonian oak for 36 months and production is 42,000 bottles.” 12/20
    Vinous Media
    94 points, Eric Guido, Vinous Media: “The 2016 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino is full of potential but is already so easy to like. Its bouquet is sweetly spiced and nuanced, showing dried roses which give way to a dusting of cedar and clove with crushed red berries and hints of flowery undergrowth. Silky textures envelope all that they touch in mineral-drenched cherry, propelled by zesty acids with building inner florals. That said, this is decidedly more feminine and lifted in character than I’m used to from this estate. It’s focused on purity throughout but with a balanced structure that will ensure over a decade of positive maturation.” 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    95 Points, James Suckling, "Gorgeous aromas of black cherry, cedar, leather and dried flowers follow through to a full body with firm, creamy tannins that are long and caressing. Tight and focused. Pretty clarity to this. Give this three or four years to open. Try after 2023." 12/20
    100 Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: "Here is a Brunello of great personality. On the nose, small dark fruits and pepper leaf. Exceptional balsamic trace in the closing. The mouthfeel shows a magnificent crunchiness and density, salty tannins. On the finish, officinal trace returning with iodized nuances." 11/20
