Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Aromas of berries, violets, and lavender. The body is full and rich with great balance. Deep red fruits with herbs and spices. Well-integrated silky tannins, and a refreshing acidity that enhances the minerality of the terroir. It is ideal with red meats, roasts, games, and aged cheeses.

The Wine Advocate 95 Points (Monica Larner) "The Caprili 2019 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a very pretty bouquet with a level of ripe fruit and pure cherry essence that does not come easily to a wine aged five years following the harvest. The primary fruit remains intact in this vintage. This village bottling shows velvety richness and concentration that stems directly from that exceptional fruit quality. There is rich texturing and fine chalky tannins to close." 12/23

Tobacco, truffle, violet, and hints of mocha and cherry pie unfold on this beautiful Brunello. Classically crafted and elegantly structured, it delivers flavors of ripe Morello cherry, wild raspberry, baking spice, and licorice alongside enveloping, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced.

This red is all about finesse delivering superb balance and complexity with cherry raspberry earth and wild herb aromas and flavors. Succulent and charming yet with a solid base of tannins and vivid acidity this remains focused through the long aftertaste. Best from 2026 through 2042.

The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino is remarkably pretty wafting up with a blend of violets and lavender before giving way to steeped plum lifted by mint. This is racy and sleek with cooling acidity and mineral tones that excite the palate. Juicy acidity enlivens tart wild-berry fruits. The 2019 finds its center through the finish as fine tannins emerge and a crunchy sensation lingers. Licorice and bitter blackberry notes taper off slowly. In a word fantastic. The balance of complexity structure and energy places 2019 very high in my book.

A ruby/magenta color, the 2019 Brunello Di Montalcino offers more rounded floral aromas of preserved strawberry, baby powder, cocoa, and lavender. Medium-bodied, it brings forward excellent energy on the palate, with fresh acidity, good concentration, and a sustained and mouthwatering finish that’s pure and delicious. The structure feels more noble than the nose would suggest and perhaps just needs more time to come into its own, but this is a really delicious wine that I would love to have again and again. On the second tasting, it offers a more plush and velvety texture, and its chocolate notes last on the finish. Drink 2024-2040.
