TASTING NOTES


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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

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.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

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.

Wine Enthusiast.

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.

Wine Spectator.

With diverse parcels throughout Montalcino, Caparzo is able to draw on each to assemble a harmonious expression of the vintage. The 2017 Brunello even includes some grapes from the estate’s San Piero vineyards in the northeast, which are typically destined for the estate's Rosso. It unfolds with appealing and quietly expressive notes of smoky grilled herbs, baked rock and glazed cherry. There is a plush, syrupy orchard fruit sweetness on the palate with gentle, yielding tannins. This is very ready.

Decanter.
