Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy's most famous and prestigious wines. In Tuscany, its homeland, it perhaps ranks alongside Chianti Classico.
The Caprili estate spreads out over an area of 58 hectares in the southwest territory of the Municipality of Montalcino on the hillside which slopes down towards the Orcia and Ombrone rivers. Of the total property, 15.5 hectares of the land is covered with vines.
The wine is a product of Sangiovese (or Nielluccio in Corsica), a dark-berried vine which is the most widely planted grape variety in Italy.
The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a great first impression thanks to the purity and intensity of the fruit. Those two things—purity and intensity—can sometimes be uncomfortable bedfellows, but this expression from Caprili unites them in happy marriage.
