Tenuta Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Brunello di Montalcino, a great classic renowned all over the world, was the first Italian wine to obtain DOCG recognition. Today, it is vinified using the most advanced wine-making technologies which nevertheless keep faith with traditional methods in use since the 1800s. After maturing for 36 months in Slavonia and French oak barrels of medium capacity 30-50 Hl , Brunello is further refined in the bottle for one year to express its most elegant characteristics over long years of correct conservation. COLOR: ruby red, tending to garnet red with ageing. BOUQUET: penetrating, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. FLAVOR: dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent. FOOD: roasts, grilled, spit-roast or braised meats, game, ripe cheeses.

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

Fresh cherry and raspberry flavors highlight this juicy red, with accents of underbrush and tobacco lending nuance, followed by a spicy finish. The dense tannins suggest this is built for the long haul. Best from 2016 through 2030.

Caparzo’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is impressive. It boasts serious depth, nuance and complexity. Smoke, licorice, spices, black cherries and plums all develop in the glass, supported by firm, beautifully integrated tannins. This is a solid Brunello with plenty of upside for the next decade, if not longer. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.
