  • Goedhuis, April 2022

    This 2016 Brunello from Caparzo is characterised by aromas of rich red cherry and raspberry laced with spiced plum, menthol, liquorice and Mediterranean herbs. Lithe acidity is matched by structured tannins and while there is still plenty of rich fruit on the palate, a delicious earthy quality with hints of leather is evolving on the finish to give yet more complexity. This is drinking fabulously already.

  • James Suckling, February 2021, Score: 94

    Plum, ripe-berry and floral aromas with hints of sandalwood and fresh mushrooms. It’s full-bodied with firm, ripe tannins and a fresh, crushed-stone finish. A little timid now. Give it another two or three years. Try after 2023.

  • Vinous, February 2021, Score: 93

    The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows mineral-laced black cherries with earth tones and hints of tanned leather. It’s soft in texture with a polished display of ripe berries and savory spice, as zesty acids create a juicy expression while slow-mounting tannins collect upon the senses. This turns dry and structured toward the finale, yet with the balance for a long and steady evolution in the cellar. This is really very nice.

Caparzo

Taken from the Latin ‘Caput Arsum’, meaning ‘a place touched by sun’, the history of Caparzo dates back to the dawning of Brunello di Montalcino at the end of the 1960s, when a group of friends with a fondness for Tuscany purchased an old ruin with vineyards at Montalcino.

Taken from the Latin ‘Caput Arsum’, meaning ‘a place touched by sun’, the history of Caparzo dates back to the dawning of Brunello di Montalcino at the end of the 1960s, when a group of friends with a fondness for Tuscany purchased an old ruin with vineyards at Montalcino. Having been renovated and modernised, new vineyards were planted and, not long after, Caparzo began to make a name for itself. In 1998, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini purchased Caparzo and, with the help of her children, they have elevated the estate to another level. Combining tradition with innovation, the Angelini family produce high-quality wines year on year, always with an emphasis on selecting the best fruit from the best plots.Read less

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.
