Tuscany

Tuscany

When wine writers discuss terroir they usually look to Burgundy or Bordeaux for examples, but Tuscany may produce some of the most convincing displays of terroir in action. Why does a Merlot or Cabernet grown in Tuscany taste like no other Merlot or Cabernet in the world? It simply tastes Tuscan—there’s a meaty, mouthwateringly savory quality to Tuscan reds that cannot be replicated in any other viticultural area.

For example, Tuscany’s most prestigious wine, Brunello di Montalcino, has this savory quality in spades. Meanwhile, some of the finest Super-Tuscans (made from international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and others) from districts such as Bolgheri or Sant’Antimo may have more weight and heft than Sangiovese, but the Tuscan terroir provides a common link. There are refreshing whites made here, such as Vermentino or Vernacchia di San Gimignano, but make no mistake—this is red wine country.

  15. Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#47542

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2020
    Caparzo is one of two properties in Montalcino owned by the beautiful and charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. The other property is Altesino. This wine, the Caparzo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a very classic interpretation that delivers the goods without any distracting bells or whistles. The wine opens to red and purple fruit aromas with background tones of dried herb, potting soil, cedar wood and light spice. Fruit comes from a site with heavier clay soils, and you get hints of that extra density and richness here. This vintage offers all you need in a model Brunello from a very beautiful and generous vintage. I always admire the wines of Caparzo for their accessible and immediate drinking style. Some 160,000 bottles were corked in August 2019, and the wine hit the market in January 2020.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2020
    An attractive mix of cherry, plum, earth, tar, spice, savory and balsamic flavors are the highlights of this well-balanced red. Licorice and salty elements emerge on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2039. 16,000 cases made, 8,500 cases imported.
    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is remarkably pretty, showing rosy florals with pretty red fruits, cedar dust, and crushed stone minerality. On the palate, soft textures give way to zesty red berry and mineral tones, as savory spices and fine tannins settle upon the senses, and the 2015 Caparzo gains volume and sweetness in the glass. The finish is long yet fresh, with a blend of acid, fruit, and tannin which leaves a truly balanced impression.
