Reviews & Ratings

Aromas of plums and chocolate with hints of hazelnut. Medium body, a solid core of ripe fruit and a rich and long finish. Very fine and polished character. Better in 2019.
James Suckling
Caparzo has crafted a beautiful, albeit simple, single-vineyard Brunello in this vintage. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna la Casa is a plump and enriched red wine with juicy fruit flavors of blackberry, dried cherry, spice, leather and moist earth. The wine is very likable, yet it offers a more approachable style and less nuanced complexity as a result. I found less dimension here compared to some of its peers. However, I would gladly drink this bottle with a steaming plate of homemade fettuccine with wild boar ragù. That pairing would be delicious.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This is rich, sporting cherry, graphite, leather and spice flavors allied to a taut, linear frame. Firm tannins dominate the earthy finish. Needs some time to come together. Best from 2021 through 2035

Caparzo

Caparzo

Originally known as the Ca’ Pazzo or the Madman’s House, this cooler Montalcino property is now home to the respected Caparzo wine estate. Established in the late 1960s, by a group of Tuscan wine enthusiasts, the then run-down vineyards were quickly restored, modernized and expanded. Within a few years Caparzo made a name for itself in the Brunello market. Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini bought the estate in 1998, and she continues to manage the 190-hectare property with the help of her two children, Igino and Alessandra. Divided amongst several sites, the 76-hectares of vineyards lie mostly in Montalcino, with a mere 5-hectares in Buonconvento. Elisabetta combines tradition with innovation, crafting expressive Montalcino wines of the upmost quality. Enologist Vittorio Fiore leads vinification producing many impressive reds. Amongst their top Brunellos, distinguished for its elegance, textural beauty and overall finesse, the single-vineyard Brunello from the La Casa is one of the country’s best. ...

Grapes

Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape (under its many clonal guises) and Tuscany’s most famous as it is the backbone to many of their greatest appellations including Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and many Super Tuscans. It is thought to be of ancient origin (its name means “Blood of Jove”) and is thought to be part Tuscan, part southern Italian. Stylisically, it can range from bright ruby red to deep red, brown and tends to offer notes of sour cherries, plums and spicy leather notes paired with bright acidity and firm tannins. It produces a more rustic wine in Corsica under its clone, Nielluccio. While small quantities are produced in areas of the New World, they tend to not hit the heights of those in Italy. ...

Tuscany

Tuscany

Tuscany is arguably the most famous of all Italian wine regions for not only does one have the renowned vineyards of Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino where Sangiovese reigns in all its forms, but it is also the land of the Super Tuscan, the cult wine style that laid the foundation of some of the greatest wines of the country. Some of the greatest bottles include Sassicaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia and Masseto. In addition to being the most famous, it is also one of the most spread out with vineyards as far north as Florence and as far southeast as the Umbrian border and as far southwest as Bolgheri and the Maremma on the Mediterranean sea. Though it is most famous for its reds, it also produces delicious whites including Vernaccia from San Gimignano and Vermentino from its vineyards closer to the sea. ...
