2013 Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1358772 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This cuts more of a broad swath than its peers, yet remains graceful, evoking strawberry, cherry, tobacco and stony mineral flavors. Long and dense in structure, with a tobacco- and underbrush-tinged finish. Best from 2021 through 2033. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The caramel and ripe fruit are impressive with some grilled meat too. Full body, firm and silky. A tight and exciting wine for the future. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

Outer quote mark Caparzo is my go-to producer when I'm looking for classic Brunello with a more accessible and immediate personality to pair with pasta or grilled steak. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is made in traditional botte from Slavonian oak, where it rests for two years. Yet the bouquet is softer and more open than many other wines made in this fashion (that ultimately sees less oxygen during overall winemaking). Bright cherry and cassis is followed by deep layers of smoke, tar and grilled herb. The wine is elegant and graceful for either a medium or a long-term drinking window. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

The nose shows hints of cherry and plum while on the palate the medium bodied wine displays balance and a deeper layer of flavor than in the nose. The finish is balanced, and shows medium length, always a perennial favorite amongst bargain hunters.
Drink from 2018 to 2030
