Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2019


If you’ve been paying attention to Brunello offers over the past few years, you’ve probably seen some Caprili offers. We’ve been doing a bunch. The reason for that is simple – they’re a superstar estate well in the process of breaking off into the top echelon in the entire region.

They were actually one of the first estates in Montalcino, founded back in 1965 when there were less than 20 wineries in the entire AVA. But I’d argue, prior to the 2016 vintage offer we did with them, they were still a criminally underrated winery. It wasn’t until in a tricky 2017 that they once again delivered a beauty that saw big scores, that they finally shed the ‘under-the-radar’ moniker and broke out into prominence.

But in a 2019 vintage that is being widely heralded as “one of the best in Tuscany’s last 50 years”, the fact that Caprili delivered yet another masterpiece should come as no surprise.

96 Points, Kerin O’Keefe
Tobacco, truffle, violet and hints of mocha and cherry pie unfold on this beautiful Brunello. Classically crafted and elegantly structured, it delivers flavors of ripe Morello cherry, wild raspberry, baking spice and licorice alongside enveloping, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced. Drink 2028–2039.

95 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The Caprili 2019 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a very pretty bouquet with a level of ripe fruit and pure cherry essence that does not come easily to a wine aged five years following the harvest. The primary fruit remains intact in this vintage. This village bottling shows velvety richness and concentration that stems directly from that exceptional fruit quality. There is rich texturing and fine chalky tannins to close. Some 55,000 bottles were made

95 Points, Vinous
The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino is remarkably pretty, wafting up with a blend of violets and lavender before giving way to steeped plum lifted by mint. This is racy and sleek, with cooling acidity and mineral tones that excite the palate. Juicy acidity enlivens tart wild berry fruits. The 2019 finds its center through the finish, as fine tannins emerge and a crunchy sensation lingers. Licorice and bitter blackberry notes taper off slowly. In a word, fantastic. The balance of complexity, structure and energy places the 2019 very high in my book.
