About the wine

From the world famous Montalcino area in Southern Tuscany, Brunello is arguably Sangiovese's most serious guise, and this expression from Caparzo is more precise than most. Beautiful acidity complements the pure cherry fruit character which is rounded by some lovely soft oak influences. This is crying for some slow cooked meat and vegetables.

About the wine

The Sangiovese grapes are sourced from 4 diffrent Brunello vineyards, Carpazo, La Caduta, Il Cassero and San Piero Caselle. Fermentation takes 7 days, followed by delestages and pump overs. The wine is aged for 3 years in the traditional 80 hectolitre Slavonian and 50 hectolitre French oak, followed by at 1 year ageing in bottle before the wine is released.
