Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Garnet red, intense and brilliant, with light orange hints. The bouquet is penetrating, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. On the palate, dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere and persistent at the same time.
Pair with roasts, grilled, spit-roasted or braised meats, game and ripe cheeses.
"Fresh cherry and raspberry flavors highlight this juicy red. Accents of underbrush and tobacco lend nuance, and the dense tannins suggest this is built for the long haul. Ends with a spicy finish."
"A wine with a solid core of fruit here. Fresh and clean with lovely focused fruit. Full body, with a velvety texture and a flavorful finish. Very ready and enjoyable now. Drink or hold."
"Caparzo’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is impressive. It boasts serious depth, nuance and complexity. Smoke, licorice, spices, black cherries and plums all develop in the glass, supported by firm, beautifully integrated tannins. This is a solid Brunello with plenty of upside for the next decade, if not longer. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
