Winemaker's Notes

Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a garnet red, intense and billiant, with light orange tints. With a penetrating bouquet, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. On the palate, the wine is dry, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, and has a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"There's a delicacy to this version, showing a latent structure and a distinctive spiciness surrounding the core flavors of cherry, raspberry, licorice and mineral. Harmonious and persistent, featuring a long finish. A compelling Brunello riserva. Best from 2015 through 2032."
96 Points

"A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is endowed with superb richness and depth. Sweet black cherries, tobacco, smoke, scorched earth and tar all explode from the glass. Despite its textural richness, the 2007 remains mid-weight and gracious for the year. At times the 2007 is quite feminine, while at other moments its more virile side comes through, creating contrasts that are intriguing to follow. Caparzo has done a terrific job with their 2007 Riserva. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022. "
92 Points

"Voted among the best Brunellos by a group of winemaking peers, Caparzo’s riserva is beautifully balanced and layered with chocolate, cherry, leather, blackberry and lingering spice notes. The wine shows freshness and elegance on the finish thanks to the silky nature of the mouthfeel."
92 Points

"Very pretty pure fruit with cherries and plums on the nose. Full body, with sweet and ripe fruit. Medium full tannins and a fresh finish. Very silky. Why wait? "

As good as most finer Napa cabs. My friend compared it to Silver Oak Napa Valley. Very, very good!

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
