Capanna Brunello di Montalcino is an intense ruby color. This wine is velvety and mouth-filling with supple yet firm tannins.
Capanna's offering in 2007 is extremely bold,
dark and opulent. Loads of aromatic momentum in the
form of blackberry, cherry liqueur, spice, leather, tobacco,
rum cake, cinnamon, vanilla bean and bitter chocolate
characterize the bouquet. The wine also shows a
soft, ripe, generous texture, yet remains well-contained
Aromas of ripe raspberries and blueberries follow through to a full body, with a solid core of fruit and bright acidity. Dried lemon rind as well. This is a wine that needs a few years to open and show you what it truly has. Always serious.
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous in this vintage. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint, hard candy and licorice are some of the many notes that flow from this radiant, hugely expressive wine. The 2007 stands apart for its sensual, feminine personality and fabulous overall balance. High-toned floral notes waft from the glass on the sensual finish. There is just a touch of sweetness from the ripeness of the fruit. The 2007 was vinified in conical oak vats and aged in Slavonian oak casks for 40 months, a very traditional approach that works nicely here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.
Good, full bright red. Very ripe but lively aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol lifted by flowers and mint. A juicy, tight midweight with good medicinal reserve to its solid flavors of black and red cherry. Powerful (15% alcohol, according to the label) but not hot or tough. This firmly structured, classically styled Brunello finishes with substantial building, dusty tannins and very good lift. Built to age.
