“Aromas and flavors of crushed berries and flowers with hints of roses. Medium body. Crisp and deliciously fruity. Drink now.”-JS

“Bright ruby color with violet reflections. On the nose, this wine is intense, fruity, and spicy, with ripe blackberries, wild strawberries, spice and vanilla. On the palate, it is full, fruity, persistent, and soft, with ripe blackberries, wild strawberries, and spice and vanilla in the finish.”-Winemaker’s Notes

On the palate, it is full, fruity, persistent, and soft, with ripe blackberries, wild strawberries, and spice and vanilla in the finish.”-Winemaker’s Notes

“The name of the estate apparently derives from "Ca' Pazzo", as shown on some ancient maps. The estate covers an area of 190 hectares, 54 of which are vineyards, 4 are of olive groves, 87 of which are wooded and 45 of which are to be planted with new vines. Caparzo is the only estate-bottled producer of Brunello di Montalcino to have estate vineyards on all five sides of the hill of Montalcino, ensuring that no matter what climatic challenges effect one side, the other vineyards will more than compensate.
Caparzo, with owner Elizabetta Angelina Gnudi, and winemakers Massimo Bracalente and Francesca Arquint, aims to make top quality products using meticulous and traditional techniques, while at the same time applying a modern outlook in its commercial relations with efficiency and capability. More than thirty years have passed since the first vines were planted and the first steps in wine-making taken. In this period, Caparzo, bolstered by its background in the Brunello tradition and the different terroirs of the area, has proved its ability to produce wines with a creative flair and spirit of innovation that achieves top standards in quality.”-Winery Notes

great little wine for the price

Paula

amazing little wine

"Had never heard of this wine, but it certainly is delicious. It gets even better a day or two in the fridge. I know that sounds sacrilegious, but the tannins mellow. Great with a good ragu dish or just for sipping while watching TV."
