This ruby red wine features a deep garnet hue with age, and is sure to impress even the most discerning palate.
With complex and penetrating aromas of wild berry fruit, this wine is a sensory experience from the moment you open the bottle. On the palate, it is dry, firm, harmonious and delicate, with flavors that dance on the tongue and a finish that lingers long after the last sip.
The Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2017 is a perfect pairing for a wide range of hearty dishes, including roasts, grilled and spit-roasted meats, game, braised meats, and aged cheeses. It is a must-have for any wine lover, and a beautiful addition to any wine collection.
Wine Advocate Review - Rated 93:
This is the so-called "green label" Brunello with proprietor Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini's signature on the front of the bottle. Her classic 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is sharp and tonic with wild raspberry, cassis, lilac, earth and garden herb. There is a sweet note of sour cherry on the mid-weight finish. This is an ample 160,000-bottle production made in a traditional approach with two years in casks made with both Slavonian and French oak.
James Suckling Review - Rated 93:
Plenty of sweet cherries and plums with some chocolate on both the nose and palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with medium to full tannins that are plush and succulent. Fresh citrus to the fruit at the end. Remains cool and layered.
Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 91:
Pretty aromas of blue flowers and wild berries mix with new leather and botanical herbs. On the linear, already approachable palate, fine-grained, polished tannins accompany juicy Morello cherry, star anise, crushed mint and mocha. Drink through 2027.
Wine Spectator Review - Rated 90:
Bright fruit flavors mark this harmonious red, offering cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and sanguine notes. Lightly dusty tannins come to the fore as this winds down on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2042.
