Caprili 2018 Rosso di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

Caprili is a Brunello estate in the southwestern sector of the Montalcino appellation near the hamlet of Tavernelle. They are considered one of the old guard of Montalcino producers as they were established in 1965 when they split off from the famous Pieve Santa Restituta estate. The estate is extremely well located, next to Pieve Santa Restituta but also immediately adjacent to Soldera. As such, it is no surprise they are making great wine at Caprili.  The bigger surprise is that they are still very much “under-the-radar”!?

Winemaker: Giacomo Bartolommei

Farming: Organic Practicing

Varieties: Sangiovese Grosso

Soil / Terroir: Mixed  limestone and silica rocks

Vinification: Fermentation  under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks for
about 18-20 days with  8-10 soft daily pump-overs. Aging: Six months  in stainless steel tanks, half a year in large Slavonian oak barrels and a few  months in the bottle.

Tasting Notes: Classic, delicious Sangiovese Grosso! Medium-bodied with hints of tannin, and warming aromas of sour red cherry, red currant, hints of fresh tobacco, crushed tomatoes and hints of fresh rosemary. 

Scores: 92 Points, James Suckling- A tight, refined red with red and sour-cherry aromas and flavors that are buttressed with walnut, bark and chocolate-powder character. Full-bodied and chewy. Tight and beautiful. Drink or hold.
