Open your bottle of Caprili Brunello di Montalcino a couple of hours before you're ready to pour. Warning: the aromas may conjure hallucinations of rolling hills and a patchwork of vineyards, wheat fields and olive orchards, all under the most beautiful Tuscan sun. In the meantime, you can check on your leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic as it roasts to a delicious doneness. Or, make a ragu of cinghiale (wild boar) to go with a thick, hearty pappardelle. Set out some Marcona almonds to accompany your first glasses and the wonderful earthy side of this Caprili. An Italian sausage, prosciutto and arugala white pizza with lots of garlic will go beautifully with that same earthy side. And if you're not in a meaty mood, make it a portabella risotto and don't skimp on the good Parmesan. Looking for a reason to have another glass after all that? A platter of aged Gouda and some dried fruit is your answer. Buon Apetito winelovers! 

Wine Spectator:  "Offering cherry, plum, iron, earth and floral aromas and flavors, this is vibrant and beautifully balanced. Well-structured, with the harmony and concentration to develop. Best from 2023 through 2043."  Web only 2020.

James Suckling:  "This is a very decadent Brunello with dried stems, charcuterie, bay leaf, Thai basil and earth. Full-bodied and dense, the deeply interlocked layers of dark fruit nearly trip over the ropey, chewy tannin structure. Drink from 2026." Nov 2019

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The Caprili 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers warm-vintage aromas of dark fruit and dried cherry followed by earthy tones of leather and moist potting soil. This is a classic rendition of Sangiovese that shows the opulence and richness of this sunny vintage, as well as the elegant restraint that you normally associate with the mighty Montalcino growing area. The palate reveals a spot of fruity sweetness, but you also get the savory and spicy elements that come with extended barrel aging. Overall, this is an easy and accessible expression of Brunello for near- and medium-term drinking. Drink 2021-2033." Jan 2020

Winery:  "Softer and less tannic of the Brunello Riserva. This wine has an intense color and aromas with ample notes of red berries. On the palate gives a body of great balance with tannins well integrated into the structure, which ensures elegance and longevity."
