Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino La Casa 2017
|Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
An intense, muscular red hallmarked by black currant, black cherry, stony mineral and sanguine flavors. Reveals a meaty character midpalate, with sinewy yet refined tannins holding court on the finish. Fine balance and length. Best from 2025 through 2042. 2,500 cases made, 600 cases imported.
Aromas of woodland berries, rose and camphor waft out of the glass. The smooth, elegant palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and a hint of ground clove. Fine-grained tannins provide gentle support before a rather drying close. Drink through 2027.
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa takes things to a deeper, darker and earthier place, with underbrush and sous-bois giving way to wild herbs and red currants. It's silky in texture yet salty and savory to the core, delivering mineral-laced woodland berries and smoky notes toward the close. This tapers off with persistence, leaving a staining of primary concentration, along with hints of lavender and blackberries. The 2017 may not have the structural staying power that I typically associate with La Casa, but it is a wonderful expression of vintage and terroir.
