Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2017

$50.00

Caprili ran the board and all that for a Brunello that checks in at just fifty bucks.

Well – in a 2017 vintage that naturally thinned crops by 15%, there may be less wine to go around but the quality is just as high & some of the press have already paid their now annual pilgrimage to Caprili and the early results are equally strong.

Wine Enthusiast came in at 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.”

And the Wine Advocate echoed the praise in their 94 point review, calling it the standout wine from 2017:

“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.”
