Montalcino is one of the most highly regarded wine producing regions of Italy, if not the world. Sitting on top of the rolling hills of southern Tuscany, it is a place where the sangiovese grape, in particular, really comes alive. The Caparzo estate first planted vines there over 30 years ago. On their 190 hectare estate, they have over 54 hectares of vineyards that ring the entire hillside of Montalcino. This makes Caparzo the only Brunello producer who has estate grown Sangiovese with multiple different terriors helping give more depth to their prestigious wines. Winery owner Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini purchased Caparzo in 1998 and works side by side with winemaker Massimo Bracalente using traditional techniques for producing their top notch Brunello's. With wines like our email deal this week, the 2018 Caparzo Sangiovese IGT, their focus on traditional production with modern touches in the cellar help retain more freshness and complexity than their competitors.
The 2018 Caparzo Sangiovese IGT has a crushed velvet red color in the glass with upfront aromas of black cherries, blackberries, wild raspberries, and backed by notes of forest spice and vanilla. The wine is friendly, nicely balanced, and medium weight with fresh red berry notes, and a persistent, long, soft finish. The Caparzo Sangiovese has great versatility for just opening at a party or pairing up with a mixed prosciutto & cheese plate, hors d'oeuvres, Bolognese pasta dish or roasted game bird. It’s delicious, inexpensive and perfect for the holiday party season. Cheers.
