Tenuta Caparzo Sangiovese Rosso di Montalcino 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Intense ruby red colour with notes of violet. Bouquet: Intense, fruity and spicy with notes of mature blackberry, raspberry and vanilla. Flavour: Savoury, flavorful and round with a persistent aftertaste. Food combination: Given its fruitiness, Sangiovese can be paired with first courses and white meats, but shows at its best with full-flavored dishes such as roasts, grilled meats, cold cuts and Tuscan regional specialties.

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

Too soon for me to give a proper review but, too dry for me after decantering for 30 minutes

A little light and young for a Brunello but still pretty good. Had a second time 6 months later, still about the same.

Pleasant nose with fruit, mostly cherry, that is nicely balanced with strong notes of leather. It is fruit forward on the palate with a long, cherry finish that is still a bit tight. Needs an earthy element on the palate to take it to the next level. It's a nice wine at $12.

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is surprisingly dark in profile for this bottling. A sweet, Pinot-like bouquet leads to perfumed black cherries, spices, licorice and tobacco. This mid-weight, graceful Brunello offers gorgeous balance, with an expressive core of fruit that flows through to a long, refined close. The 2005 is one of best versions of this wine I have tasted in some time. In 2005 the estate did not make either their Riserva (usually a selection of barrels in the cellar) or their La Casa single-vineyard selection, and the addition of that fruit here undoubtedly contributes to the winersquo;s overall sense of harmony. The rest of the fruit was sourced from the Il Cassero and Caparzo vineyards. Though not a blockbuster, this is a very elegant Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2020.

Dieser Wein ist ein Meisterwerk von grosser Ausgewogenheit und Harmonie. Die fruchtbetonte Nase lässt Noten von Waldfrüchten, Gewürzen und Vanille entdecken. Der volle Geschmack endet in einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

This is always on the mark. Pretty berry and mineral character throughout. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins, yet theyrsquo;re elegant and refined. A well-done red. Best after 2004.

Clean and elegant with polished tannins and a silky texture. Caparzo makes some of the nicest Brunello you will find in the USA. This vintage is characterized by bright berry tones and a lean but elegant feel in the mouth.

Quite dark ruby red. Intense and persistent, with scents of sour black cherry, mulberry, soft fruit, liquorice and vanilla. Savoury, round, persistent, well-orchestrated.

Made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes, Rosso di Montalcino Caparzo is matured for a year in Slavonia oak barrels and then refined in the bottle for about six months.Fruity, with a rich, fresh and evocative bouquet, this wine has good body, harmony and persistence and is ideal for moderate ageing.
