Brunello di Montalcino Caparzo
The Caparzo 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is a ripe and well-balanced wine from a vintage that was much lauded in the press. Many of the regions wines were excellent this year, but Caparzo have shown ability to maintain elegance and restraint amongst the many overblown and high alcohol examples that resulted from this very warm vintage. At 13.5% abv the wine shows full phenolic ripeness without becoming a monster. Aged in traditional Slavonian oak casks for two years, and in bottle for a further three years before release.
Aromas of dark fruit, dried leaves and hints of cedar follow through to a medium to full body, a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins and a flavourful finish. Warm and aromatic and already filling out nicely but with potential to age beautifully for the next 5-10 years. Top class.
