2012 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

SKU #1363635 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark One of the few founding estates of the Brunello consorzio in 1967, Capanna crafts its Riserva from the oldest vines among their 12ha holdings on the Montosoli hill. It is given a long maceration of 35 days and aged in Slavonian oak botti. Inviting floral, tea, earth and dried mint aromas lead the way. The palate is currently less giving, wrapped up in chewy tannins, but promises great potential. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of balsamico and soy sauce on the nose as well as super ripe red fruits. Rather sweet on the palate in spite of the full, chewy tannins, which weighs it down a bit. With more freshness this would have been rated higher. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep red-ruby. Very elegant aromas of raspberry, dark cherry, underbrush and minerals; the nose is actually quite similar to that of Capanna’s 2013 regular Brunello. (ID) 91+ Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Powerfully, structured, this robust wine opens with aromas of forest floor, baked plum, camphor and a whiff of new leather. Showing the heat of the vintage, the warm hearty palate offers stewed prune, tobacco, licorice and a hint of dried mint framed in assertive close-grained tannins. You'll also notice the heat of evident alcohol on the close. Give the tannins a few years to unwind then drink to capture the remaining fruit. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2018)
