Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016

In stock
Product Details

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

Luca Gardini:This Brunello from the Cencioni family demonstrates an excellent interpretation. Montosoli area, a wine characterized by a floral nose of geranium, alcohol-infused cherries, ending on the notes of cinnamon. Juicy and taut mouth, salty tannins. A balsamic and fruity taste returning on the finish.” 110/100 (a rating reserved for truly exceptional wines)

“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.

Vinous:The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva wafts up with a classic Capanna profile, rich yet elegant, with masses of crushed black cherries, sweet herbs, cloves and hints of cigar box. This is velvety yet not weighty, with a salty core of minerals and brisk acids that enliven its citrus-tinged red berries and exotic spice. While persistent and structured, the 2016 keeps you coming back to the glass, savory and saline in character with grippy tannins, but also a tug of residual tension that keeps the expression unexpectedly fresh. This is a tremendous Brunello Riserva in the making, and all it needs is time. ” 96/100
