      Sangiovese di Toscana IGT 2019

      Bright, fruity red. Fresh and fruity nose of elder, cherries, spices and citrus fruits. On the palate very tasteful, precise and fresh. The firm body and its fresh finish make it a wonderful everyday wine and food companion. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Profusion of cherries and berries on the nose, following through to the palate. It’s medium-bodied with firm, fine tannins and a lemon-zest aftertaste." James Suckling

    • "La Caduta" Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2017

      “La Caduta” Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2017

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

      "On the austere side, yet complex and balanced, evoking strawberry, cherry and earth flavors, with a tight matrix of tannins enhanced by lively acidity as this persists on the lingering finish." Wine Spectator

      "The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino La Caduta impresses with a classic and savory mix of wild strawberries complemented by notes of incense, sweet tobacco, leather and dusty earth. The textures are silky and rich, lifted by cooling acids and minerals with a dark display of ripe blackberry and plums. There's a density and primary feel to its fruit that I find quite attractive, perfectly framed by fine tannins, as this turns classically dry through the finish, with inner violet tones and hints of currant lingering long. More like a baby Brunello, this is easily one of the most successful Rossos of the vintage, but it will need a year or two of cellaring to be at its best." Vinous

      "Firm and very silky with cherry, smoke, orange-peel and cedar character. It's fresh and cool for a 2017 and shows firmness and depth. Baby Brunello here." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Caparzo is one of two estates in Montalcino (the other is called Altesino, by the way) owned by the utterly charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. Caparzo's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a very classic interpretation that delivers the perfect stuff without distracting frills. The wine opens with aromas of red and purple fruits, with dried herbs, potting soil, cedar and light spices showing in the background. The fruit comes from a site with heavier clay soils, one gets a good impression of this additional density and richness here. The 2016 vintage, which is simply perfect in terms of climate, offers everything you look for in an exemplary and generous Brunello. This is pure pleasure, the style of the wines simply makes you want more ... SUPERIORE.DE

      "Expressive yet finely contoured with very clear notes of cherry, red plums as well as lovely floral hints and a fine marzipan note. Polished on the palate with fine tannin, sweet berries and lovely varietal expression. Excellent wine value available for under €30." Weinwisser

      "Dark ruby red. In the nose slightly flowery, after violets, then citrus accentuated on oranges and lemons, but develops in the glass and opens up after some time on red berry nuances paired with noble spice. Shows fine polish on the palate, elegant cranberry fruit, has many layers and great pressure, seems very balanced, gripping tannin in the finish." Falstaff

      "Prior to acquiring the Altesino estate, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini purchased Caparzo in 1998. The property includes 28 hectares designated for Brunello and this estate bottling amalgamates vineyards from four distinct areas with different exposures and soils. The 2016 is charming with a delicate lightness and lively brightness. Violet, rosemary and liquorice aromas lead to cool mint and brambly notes on the palate. Easy flowing and seamless with smooth tannins and a dusty cherry finish." Decanter

      "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." Vinous

      "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." James Suckling

      "Ripe, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit are accented by floral, mineral and wild herbs in this alluring red. A backbone of dense, dusty tannins provides support, and the ripe fruit returns on the savory finish. Excellent length." Wine Spectator

    • Brunello di Montalcino "La Casa" DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino “La Casa” DOCG 2016

      La Casa 2016 is a terrificwine in deep dark ruby red and a bouquet of small red berries, cedar wood and spicy-scented flowers that opens up for minutes. The palate is precise, taut and finely layered, with silky textures and a palate concert of spicy black cherries, spices, leather, tobacco and tar. Dense yet elegant as it progresses, the fine-grained tannins rounding out its perfect beauty. Very intense and with a wonderful ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Already the bouquet shows a lot of intensity with ripe plums and dark, candied cherries, plus a bouquet of floral notes, violets, lavender, but also "powerful" notes like iron and blood. Densely built on the palate with present, ripe tannins, sweet berry fruit, showing provenance and vintage with a multi-layered final and punchy Sangiovese spice." Weinwisser

      "Powerful, sparkling ruby. Very much present and clear fruit, after fresh plums, dark cherries, fine cloves in the background. Gripping, gripping tannin, spreads out richly, after red berry fruit, slightly malty note in the final." Falstaff

      "One of five vineyards sites in the Caparzo stable, Vigna La Casa is located on the Galestro-rich soil of Montalcino's revered Montosoli hill. Quite primary and fresh, this hints at smoke, cedar and star anise. It is more firmly structured and robust than the estate Brunello, with palpable wood tannins and ripe, dark cherry filling out the palate." Decanter

      "Rose, graphite, star anise and eucalyptus aromas come to the forefront. The chiseled, racy palate features juicy morello cherry, licorice and coffee bean framed in close-grained tannins and bright acidity." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa takes a little time to collect itself in the glass, pulling you closer as white smoke gives way to crushed stone, then peppery florals, wild strawberry and cedar. The textures are like pure silk, with an elegant display of savory black cherry and spice complicated by salty minerals. This shows amazing density while never feeling heavy, nearly masking its fine-grained tannins until the very end, where hints of orange citrus and dried berries linger. The 2016 La Casa is a beauty with plenty of upside potential." Vinous

      "This red displays a mix of macerated plum, cherry, mint, earth, iron and sanguine flavors. In the savory camp, without the purity of many of its peers, at least today, yet harmonious and long, with dusty tannins on the finish. Be patient." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of berry, toffee and chocolate with cherry undertones. It's full-bodied with a tight, focused palate with ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Tight and polished. Needs bottle age to open and show its true potential." James Suckling

      Brunello di Montalcino “La Casa” DOCG 2015 · MAGNUM in OWC

      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

      "Intense fine-spicy flower with fresh berry aromas, also floral components; solid texture, the tannin-acid framework in balance, polished finish on notes of stone fruit, tobacco and eucalyptus." Vinum

      "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

      "With an enviable position on the Montosoli hill, Caparzo's La Casa vineyard has been vinified separately since 1977 and is among the first single-vineyard bottlings in Montalcino. Like the regular Brunello, La Casa possesses surprising underling acidity which gives brightness and focus to the wine; the northern exposition of the plot certainly played a factor in this. Fresh herbs and pomegranate offset sunbaked earth and incense nuances. The palate is quite substantial and concentrated, with tactile tannins, though it stays fresh and fluent." Decanter

      "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

The 2016 is charming with a delicate lightness and lively brightness. Violet, rosemary and liquorice aromas lead to cool mint and brambly notes on the palate. Easy flowing and seamless with smooth tannins and a dusty cherry finish." Decanter

      "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." Vinous

      "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." James Suckling

      "Ripe, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit are accented by floral, mineral and wild herbs in this alluring red. A backbone of dense, dusty tannins provides support, and the ripe fruit returns on the savory finish. Excellent length." Wine Spectator

    • Brunello di Montalcino "La Casa" DOCG 2015 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino “La Casa” DOCG 2015 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      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

      "Intense fine-spicy flower with fresh berry aromas, also floral components; solid texture, the tannin-acid framework in balance, polished finish on notes of stone fruit, tobacco and eucalyptus." Vinum

      "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

      "With an enviable position on the Montosoli hill, Caparzo's La Casa vineyard has been vinified separately since 1977 and is among the first single-vineyard bottlings in Montalcino. Like the regular Brunello, La Casa possesses surprising underling acidity which gives brightness and focus to the wine; the northern exposition of the plot certainly played a factor in this. Fresh herbs and pomegranate offset sunbaked earth and incense nuances. The palate is quite substantial and concentrated, with tactile tannins, though it stays fresh and fluent." Decanter

      "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 "La Casa" DOCG 2016 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino “La Casa” DOCG 2016 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      La Casa 2016 is a terrificwine in deep dark ruby red and a bouquet of small red berries, cedar wood and spicy-scented flowers that opens up for minutes. The palate is precise, taut and finely layered, with silky textures and a palate concert of spicy black cherries, spices, leather, tobacco and tar. Dense yet elegant as it progresses, the fine-grained tannins rounding out its perfect beauty. Very intense and with a wonderful ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Already the bouquet shows a lot of intensity with ripe plums and dark, candied cherries, plus a bouquet of floral notes, violets, lavender, but also "powerful" notes like iron and blood. Densely built on the palate with present, ripe tannins, sweet berry fruit, showing provenance and vintage with a multi-layered final and punchy Sangiovese spice." Weinwisser

      "Powerful, sparkling ruby. Very much present and clear fruit, after fresh plums, dark cherries, fine cloves in the background. Gripping, gripping tannin, spreads out richly, after red berry fruit, slightly malty note in the final." Falstaff

      "One of five vineyards sites in the Caparzo stable, Vigna La Casa is located on the Galestro-rich soil of Montalcino's revered Montosoli hill. Quite primary and fresh, this hints at smoke, cedar and star anise. It is more firmly structured and robust than the estate Brunello, with palpable wood tannins and ripe, dark cherry filling out the palate." Decanter

      "Rose, graphite, star anise and eucalyptus aromas come to the forefront. The chiseled, racy palate features juicy morello cherry, licorice and coffee bean framed in close-grained tannins and bright acidity." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa takes a little time to collect itself in the glass, pulling you closer as white smoke gives way to crushed stone, then peppery florals, wild strawberry and cedar. The textures are like pure silk, with an elegant display of savory black cherry and spice complicated by salty minerals. This shows amazing density while never feeling heavy, nearly masking its fine-grained tannins until the very end, where hints of orange citrus and dried berries linger. The 2016 La Casa is a beauty with plenty of upside potential." Vinous

      "This red displays a mix of macerated plum, cherry, mint, earth, iron and sanguine flavors. In the savory camp, without the purity of many of its peers, at least today, yet harmonious and long, with dusty tannins on the finish. Be patient." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of berry, toffee and chocolate with cherry undertones. It's full-bodied with a tight, focused palate with ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Tight and polished. Needs bottle age to open and show its true potential." James Suckling

    About the winemakersCaparzoTuscany | 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
