Available for:
Category Red Wine
Origin Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
Brand Capanna
Alcohol/vol 15%
Intense, full, lively ruby. The bouquet is very intense and complex, fruity and spicy, with notes of red fruits, jam and licorice; great prospects for future development. On the palate, great structure in the acid-tannic components, well supported by the soft ones; very persistent. Pairs well with roasted red meats, game, very mature cheeses.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva wafts up with a classic Capanna profile, rich yet elegant, with masses of crushed black cherries, sweet herbs, cloves and hints of cigar box. This is velvety yet not weighty, with a salty core of minerals and brisk acids that enliven its citrus-tinged red berries and exotic inner spice. While persistent and structured, the 2016 keeps you coming back to the glass, savory and saline in character with grippy tannins, but also a tug of residual tension that keeps the expression unexpectedly fresh. This is a tremendous Brunello Riserva in the making, and all it needs is time.

Leather, underbrush and nutty aromas form the nose along with a whiff of fruitcake. The robust, monolithic palate offers muscle but not much fruit, recalling steeped prune, the heat of evident alcohol and hints of licorice accompanied by firm, close-grained tannins. Despite the tannins, drink sooner rather than later before the remaining fruit dries out completely.
