    Critics

    Wine Advocate Notes
    95 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a great first impression thanks to the purity and intensity of the fruit. Those two things—purity and intensity—can sometimes be uncomfortable bedfellows, but this expression from Caprili unites them in happy marriage. The bouquet opens to bright red fruit, cola, chopped mint and blue flower. There is a lot of beautiful energy on hand. The wine is smooth and silky, giving it both near and long-term appeal. " 11/20
    Vinous Media
    94 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "An initial burst of medicinal red fruits and exotic spice evolves into a more refined expression of dusty roses, cedar and wild strawberries, as the 2016 Caprili Brunello di Montalcino unfolds in the glass. The textures are silky in feel, contrasted by an intense wave of tart berries and salty minerals, all carried across a core of zesty acids. This shows the radiance of the 2016 vintage, along with rounded tannins which add poise without ever robbing the expression of its vibrancy, culminating in a totally classic and fully satisfying finale." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    94 Points, James Suckling: "Plenty of floral and plum character with some sour-cherry and smoke undertones. It’s full and chewy, yet polished and proper. Chewy at the end, suggesting that two or three years of bottle age will soften it and bring it together. Try after 2024."
    Wine Spectator Notes
    95 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: “A mix of iron, leather, tar and Mediterranean scrub marks this wiry red, which settles into a core of cherry and strawberry as the dense matrix of tannins emerges, asserting itself on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2042.” 03/21
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    Classic Sangiovese aromas of wild berry, forest floor, rose and new leather waft out of the glass along with whiffs of camphor. Delicious and smooth, the elegantly structured palate features ripe wild cherry, blood orange and licorice alongside polished tannins. It’s well balanced, with fresh acidity—what a fantastic showing. It’s already accessible but will age well for years to come.
