Brunello di Montalcino la Casa Caparzo 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"A floral and perfumed nose, with raspberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, with racy tannins and a dense yet refined palate. A little tight still. Give it a little more bottle age. Best after 2010...93" WS 04/09 "The single-vineyard 2004 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa is a sweet, layered offering that blossoms on the palate with notable elegance and class. The wine continues to build, showing terrific volume and density as its dark fruit accompanies the tannins all the way to the finish. This is an intense, brooding Brunello in need of bottle age, but its qualities are impossible not to admire even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024...93." WA 6/09

Tenuta Caparzo:
The “Caparzo” name seems to originate from Ca' Pazzo, as seen in several ancient maps. The vineyards, cellars and all wine-making equipment were developed towards the end of the 1960s, with progressive adaptation and constant up-dating of both the land and the cellars. Innovative cultivation systems and, in particular, several clones are still experimented today on the estates - extending over an area of 190
