Brunello di Montalcino Caparzo 93js Premier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Wraps around the palate with layers of rich, seductive fruit. There is plenty of expressiveness in the glass, even if the wine loses some of its persistence on the mid-palate and finish. This is a tasty, approachable Brunello that should drink well right out of the gate...91" WA 4/12 "A wine with wonderful berry and dried strawberry character with hints of cedar. Full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Structured with tension. Give it two or three years but delicious already. Excellent value. ...93" JamesSuckling.com 09/12

Tenuta Caparzo:
The “Caparzo” name seems to originate from Ca' Pazzo, as seen in several ancient maps. The vineyards, cellars and all wine-making equipment were developed towards the end of the 1960s, with progressive adaptation and constant up-dating of both the land and the cellars. Innovative cultivation systems and, in particular, several clones are still experimented today on the estates - extending over an area of 190

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.

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.

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.
