2015 Caparzo "La Casa" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1441507 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Beautiful combination here of balanced orange and lemon rind and riper glazed cherries, terracotta and scorched earth. Mushroom too. Tightly wound and elegant with a persistent core of mineral acidity and finely wrapped-up tannins. Drink in 2021. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Caparzo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa opens to a very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond. The wine remains very tight and crisp overall, but it does cede to more volume and puts on more weight as it opens in the glass. There is a pretty note of crushed stone or granite on the close. The La Casa vineyard site is characterized by clay soils broken up with shards of Galestro schist that adds to the cool and fresh profile of the wine. This lovely single-vineyard Brunello is almost ready to drink (wait a few more years), but it should also withstand the next 10 years of cellar aging should you decide to put your bottle aside. Some 15,000 bottles were produced. The wine was bottled in August 2019 and released in January 2020. (ML) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Fuligni estate is located between the town of Montalcino and Torrenieri in the northeast. Its 10ha of vineyards reach up to 450 metres on rocky marls and are mostly east facing. This rather gentle, cooler exposition worked in the wine's favour in 2015. While full-bodied, it is adeptly proportioned and even demonstrates great precision, boasting sweet, dried herbs, coriander and leather atop plush red cherries. There is a stoniness underneath, with layers of clingy tannins and a sappy, appetising finish. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good full ruby. Brooding aromas of cassis, menthol, chocolate and minerals. Dense and juicy but slightly hard at present, with a floral nuance and nicely integrated acidity lending precision to the red fruit and violet flavors. The slightly tough tannins and the dumbed down fruit leave an impression of medicinal austerity on the long mouthcoating finish. Needs time. (ID) 94+ Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spicy cherry, raspberry and plum flavors are shaded by tobacco and earth notes in this savory red. Elegant and solidly built, with refined tannins upholding the lingering finish. Shows good sweetness courtesy of the ripe fruit. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2020)
