    Brunello di Montalcino "La Casa" DOCG 2015 <br>6 Bottles 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
