Intense ruby red in color. Bouquet is full and persistent, reminiscent of violets, raspberry, and pomegranate. Warm, dry, generous and well-balanced on the palate.
Pair with red meat, pasta dishes with sauces, vegetable soups and sharp ripe cheeses.
There have been some recent excellent reviews of the Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2003,’04,’05 from this estate. The quality hasn’t stopped with the Brunello. The Caparzo Rosso 2007 follows like-wise. Over the years many people rush and try the first release of the Rosso’s from Montalcino, with “Baby Brunello” being the cry often. The Rosso from Caparzo is special in that many of the vineyards are on hillsides. Quality here is on the upswing with rich fruity flavors. Great with medium weight food pairings.
