Brunello di Montalcino Caparzo 2015 (750ML)
93 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: "Caparzo is one of two properties in Montalcino owned by the beautiful and charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. The other property is Altesino. This wine, the Caparzo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a very classic interpretation that delivers the goods without any distracting bells or whistles. The wine opens to red and purple fruit aromas with background tones of dried herb, potting soil, cedar wood and light spice. Fruit comes from a site with heavier clay soils, and you get hints of that extra density and richness here. This vintage offers all you need in a model Brunello from a very beautiful and generous vintage. I always admire the wines of Caparzo for their accessible and immediate drinking style. Some 160,000 bottles were corked in August 2019, and the wine hit the market in January 2020." 01/20
92+ Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: "Medium bright red. Red cherry, raspberry, tobacco and pepper on the nose. Supple, juicy and broad, with cool, perfumed flavors of red berries, cherry, licorice and herbs. In a lighter style for a Brunello, but shows good cut without coming off as hard and offers lovely acid-fruit balance." 4/20
95 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "Plum and ripe-berry with cedar and fresh-mushroom aromas and flavors. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Hints of chocolate. Shows intensity and focus. Drink or hold." 10/19
International Wine Reviews
95 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Report: "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a sensational release from Caparzo in this vintage. Ample and expressive in its sensory profile, it shows nuances of red plums, red flowers, cloves and wild myrtle, with a wonderful Mediterranean herb character. The is medium to full-boded with well-extracted ripe tannins enveloping the palate and luminous essence and character on the finish. Excellent today, but should become even more impressive as it evolves over time." 04/20
