2015 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1490230 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Plums and dried flowers with violets and lavender and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, dense and fruity with a big and juicy palate, yet the round and firm tannins hold it all together and give it form. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright deep red. Musky, bracing aromas and flavors of red cherry and orange peel, tarragon and violet. Full and tactile, with racy acidity giving the wine’s deep flavors real cut and grip. Finishes with lingering saline nuances on the clean, refined back end. A rather uncompromising style of Brunello, but very true to type; this will also age extremely well. Capanna has always made excellent solid, traditional Brunellos, but it strikes me as being an estate on a real roll of late. (ID) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Capanna is one of the pillars of the Montalcino denomination. Giuseppe Cencioni purchased the estate in 1957 and it has been family-run ever since. Today, Cencioni's grandsons Patrizio and Amedeo tend the vineyard and the cellar, remaining true to Capanna's style which is restrained and firm rather than flashy or fleshy. Captivating savoury aromas reverberate as blood and rust notes on the palate. Dense fruit - typical of this vintage - is hemmed in by commanding tannins while tangy acidity cuts through the core. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Though backed by stiff tannins, the cherry and strawberry flavors at the core are pure and defined. Earth, iron and woodsy elements accent the fruit. Rights itself in the end, showing fine equilibrium. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

96 points Luca Gardini in Gardininotes.com: "The great passion of the Cencioni family results in this clear and decisive Brunello. Round and spicy on the nose: blackberry, thyme and pepper leaf dominating. The mouthfeel offers an extraordinary saltiness with hints of Taggiasca olives. Marvellous persistence and excellent salinity." (03/2020)
