Product Details
Merk: Capanna
Ter info: Sangiovese Brunello Montesoli Montalcino red wine Galestro Italy Tuscany

Patrizio and Amedeo Cencioni’s Capanna is located near the Montosoli hill, on the northern side of the appellation, where the soils are rich in galestro rocks and marine deposits. The area benefits especially from steep diurnal temperature shifts that give the wines bright freshness.

Year after year, the Cencioni family produces top-class, long-lived, classic Brunello from their high-altitude south-southwest facing vineyards in the Montesoli region. The high altitude lends the wines their tension and minerality, while the southern exposure ensures good ageing, the best of both worlds.

Luca Gardini:North-East area of Montalcino, a winery with unassailable historicity, here in an excellent interpretation of 2017. A Brunello of great character. Nose of red currant, with touches of undergrowth and nutmeg, with a nice hint of juniper at the end. It has an excellent density, salty tannins and a fruity-balsamic finish.” 97/100 (Only 4 wines got a slightly higher score, all a tad more expensive!!)
