Caprili Brunello Di Montalcino 2017
Wine Enthusiast: 95 Points
Savory and loaded with personality this soulful red opens with aromas of mature wild berries camphor new leather and forest floor. Showing surprising freshness and remarkable balance for the hot vintage the palate has an earthy elegance featuring juicy Marasca cherry blood orange crushed mint underbrush and star anise set against a backbone of firm crushed-velvet tannins.

The Caprili 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is lovely. The wine strikes that great balance of dark fruit rose and tar that makes Brunello unique and it doesn't have those rough edges or stemmy tannins that you see sometimes in this undeniably hot and dry vintage. This expression remains elegant but also generous and that's not an easy intersection to reach. This is a standout wine from 2017 despite the challenges and the lower yields obtained this year. Production is 38865 bottles.
