Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2016
$79.95 + GST
Open your bottle of Caprili Brunello di Montalcino a couple of hours before you’re ready to pour. Warning: the aromas may conjure hallucinations of rolling hills and a patchwork of vineyards, wheat fields and olive orchards, all under the most beautiful Tuscan sun.
“Classic Sangiovese aromas of wild berry, forest floor, rose and new leather waft out of the glass along with whiffs of camphor. Delicious and smooth, the elegantly structured palate features ripe wild cherry, blood orange and licorice alongside polished tannins. It’s well balanced, with fresh acidity—what a fantastic showing. It’s already accessible but will age well for years to come. Drink 2022–2031.”

“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. The bouquet opens to bright red fruit, cola, chopped mint and blue flower. There is a lot of beautiful energy on hand. The wine is smooth and silky, giving it both near and long-term appeal, This is a 45,000-bottle release” Drink from 2024-2040

“Plenty of floral and plum character with some sour-cherry and smoke undertones. It’s full and chewy, yet polished and proper. Chewy at the end, suggesting that two or three years of bottle age will soften it and bring it together. Try after 2024.”
