    • Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018

      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018

      Bright ruby red. The bouquet opens with cedar wood, then plum and small red berries. In the body medium-weight, fresh and of pleasant buoyancy, precise fruit and a pleasant finish. A wonderful drinking wine with claim! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lively red color. Exceptionally perfumed nose reminds of red fruits, menthol, coffee and fresh herbs. Dense and fresh with flavors closely echoing the aromas. Boasts outstanding acid-fruit-tannin balance and a silky-sweet mouthfeel; I tasted two different bottles just to be sure, and based at least on what I tasted, this Rosso is a real knockout, in fact one of the very best from the 2018 vintage."

    • "La Caduta" Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2016

      “La Caduta” Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2016

      La Caduta is a mature, velvety Rosso di Montalcino with great depth and intensity - stylistically far removed from the basic Rosso. Enthusiasm for this fruit emphasis! SUPERIORE.DE

    • Brunello di Montalcino "La Casa" DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino “La Casa” DOCG 2015

      Brunello La Casa 2015 is to rave about and possibly the best in the history of the house: bright, intense ruby garnet. Complex aromas of sweet red fruits melt into rose petals, liquorice, spices and mint. Firm and polished on the palate, floral notes provide liveliness, fine tannins and balanced acidity give structure and stability, beautifully articulated and juicy on the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny ruby with garnet rim. Very clear and appealing nose, sweet cherries and raspberries, light liquorice notes in the background. A lot of juicy cherry fruit on the palate, then opens up with fine-meshed, polished tannin, spans a wide arc, long finish with lots of juicy fruit." Falstaff

      "Spicy cherry, raspberry and plum flavors are shaded by tobacco and earth notes in this savory red. Elegant and solidly built, with refined tannins upholding the lingering finish. Shows good sweetness courtesy of the ripe fruit." Wine Spectator

      "Good full ruby. Brooding aromas of cassis, menthol, chocolate and minerals. Dense and juicy but slightly hard at present, with a floral nuance and nicely integrated acidity lending precision to the red fruit and violet flavors. The slightly tough tannins and the dumbed down fruit leave an impression of medicinal austerity on the long mouthcoating finish. Needs time." Vinous

      "Caparzo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa opens to a very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond. The wine remains very tight and crisp overall, but it does cede to more volume and puts on more weight as it opens in the glass. There is a pretty note of crushed stone or granite on the close. The La Casa vineyard site is characterized by clay soils broken up with shards of Galestro schist that adds to the cool and fresh profile of the wine. This lovely single-vineyard Brunello is almost ready to drink (wait a few more years), but it should also withstand the next 10 years of cellar aging should you decide to put your bottle aside." Robert Parker

      "Beautiful combination here of balanced orange and lemon rind and riper glazed cherries, terracotta and scorched earth. Mushroom too. Tightly wound and elegant with a persistent core of mineral acidity and finely wrapped-up tannins." James Suckling

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 · MAGNUM in OWC

      This Brunello 2015 seduces all senses with harmony and open personality. Deep ruby garnet, strong, extract sweet and expansive in the bouquet with ripe cherry fruit and a fine note of rosemary. Wide on the palate, long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of mature woodland berry, underbrush, leather and camphor mingle together with a whiff of blue flower. The bright, polished palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry, cocoa and clove alongside taut fine-grained tannins that leave a firm, somewhat chalky finish. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced." Wine Enthusiast

      "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." Vinous

      "An attractive mix of cherry, plum, earth, tar, spice, savory and balsamic flavors are the highlights of this well-balanced red. Licorice and salty elements emerge on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Caparzo is one of two properties in Montalcino owned by the beautiful and charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. 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." Robert Parker

      "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." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Caparzo
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Caparzo

    When Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini bought the winery in 1998, Caparzo, under the management of Nuccio Turone, was already one of the most modern wineries in Tuscany. Twelve friends from Milan had acquired the cypress-lined property in the mid-1960s in the north of the municipality of Montalcino as a kind of common country house to produce Brunello, but later abandoned it due to differences of opinion. The great commitment shown by the circumspect Roman Gnudi Angelini in the expensive restructuring and further strengthening of the enchanting winery has led to remarkable successes. The new underground rooms for winemaking and a meanwhile completed renewal of the wood stock with the purchase of barrels in intermediate sizes let the winery shine again in the bright brilliance of earlier times. The company can therefore rightly count itself among the most renowned Brunello manufacturers in the denomination. The first Brunello had already been produced in this production facility in 1970.

    The winemaker and former film producer, supported by a very competent team of employees, owns a total of four wineries. Caparzo loves Elisabetta the most, however, because it is there - as she says - that her personal handwriting is best recognizable. The dynamic plant manager is unwaveringly convinced of the great potential of this operation. Since 1997 Massimo Bracalente has been responsible for the preparation of the fine wines of the house. The ingenious oenologist is not only well versed in his profession, but was also born and raised in Montalcino. His reputation as „Master of Sangiovese“ goes far beyond the borders of the famous wine village. It is therefore no surprise that drops of the house of Caparzo are repeatedly handed out at state banquets.

    The 90 hectares of Tenuta Caparzo vineyards are spread over various locations. Thanks to some fortunate circumstances, Elisabetta was able to acquire 28 hectares in the best Brunello sites and 18 hectares in the best Rosso sites. Among them were also the legendary Cru location La Casa and the location La Caduta. The latter vineyard is responsible for a Rosso with an excellent price-performance ratio. The estate's vineyards are partly located in the top areas of Montosoli in the north and Castelgiocondo in the west of Montalcino. Older plantations - also in the south - were overhauled. In addition to the outstanding Sangiovese, varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Colorino and Chardonnay thrive on the sunny slopes of Caparzo. (superiore.de)

    "The style of the house is ... already well known thanks to the best versions of La Casa, a Brunello site wine, which interprets the character of the northern quadrant with a discreet modern touch and progressively and virtuosically re-models it."Gambero Rosso 2014
