An inviting bouquet of fresh cherry and raspberry, which transfers to the palate, along with accents of tobacco, earth and sweet oak. Good firm tannins will allow it to age further. A great value for wine of this quality. Pairs well with braised meats,game and ripe cheeses.

Ruby red colour tending to garnet with ageing. Pervasive bouquet, very generous and varied, with hints of soft fruit. Flavor is dry, warm, well-sustained, well-orchestrated, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent. Try with roasts, grilled meat and on the spit, game, braised meat, mature cheese.
"There's a delicacy to this version, showing a latent structure and a distinctive spiciness surrounding the core flavors of cherry, raspberry, licorice and mineral. Harmonious and persistent, featuring a long finish. A compelling Brunello riserva. Best from 2015 through 2032."
Voted among the best Brunellos by a group of winemaking peers, Caparzo’s riserva is beautifully balanced and layered with chocolate, cherry, leather, blackberry and lingering spice notes. The wine shows freshness and elegance on the finish thanks to the silky nature of the mouthfeel.
A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is endowed with superb richness and depth. Sweet black cherries, tobacco, smoke, scorched earth and tar all explode from the glass. Despite its textural richness, the 2007 remains mid-weight and gracious for the year. At times the 2007 is quite feminine, while at other moments its more virile side comes through, creating contrasts that are intriguing to follow. Caparzo has done a terrific job with their 2007 Riserva. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022.
Caparzo is another historic property that seems to be enjoying a resurgence, something that is great to see. These two new releases are both outstanding.
