Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, March 2018

    Subtle weathered brick red hue. This has striking gamey aromas, with hints of berry fruit preserve. In the palate, a wine with a striking degree of intensity, balancing breadth of fruit, with a firm tannic mid palate, finishing with warmth and sweetness. A high tempo wine with lots of depth.

    Caprili, which lies south of the town at over 300 metres, has been a steady performer for decades. It remains resolutely traditional, fermenting with natural yeasts and ageing the wines for three years in large casks. The nose is perfumed, with cherry and marzipan aromas, and a light waxy tone. Concentrated but juicy, it's supple and fleshy but has a good burst of acidity to give some pungency and drive.

Producer

Caprili

With illustrious neighbours such as Angelo Gaja’s Pieve di Sant Restituta winery and the legendary Gianfranco Soldera, there is no doubting Caprili’s superb location to the south west of Montalcino. Caprili has often flown under the radar producing outstanding wine at excellent prices but remaining largely overshadowed by its famous neighbours. However recently we’ve really seen the quality pushed up a notch or two now this small winery is one that simply can’t be ignored. The wines produced are incredibly polished and rewarding, and in 2013 the balance and quality of the fruit that has gone into the Brunello is incredible. An estate to follow.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
