Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is thick, muscular and broad on the palate with leather, green tea, and spice. The powerful core underlies the fleshy exterior of the wine. Full-bodied with a long aftertaste.
Very rich on the nose with blackberries and blueberries. Full-bodied with chewy tannins. Lots of fruit and character on the finish. A well-structured Riserva. Better in 2015.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva bursts from the glass with dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice. This is a full-bodied, richly textured Brunello that impresses for its balance and sense of proportion. Layers of super-ripe, dark fruit flow through to the intense finish. The 2006 Riserva is obviously young today, but it is full of promise. The wine was vinified in conical oak vats and aged in Slavonian oak for 44 months. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
Bright, dark red. Slightly high-toned aromas of black cherry, licorice and mint. A distinctly dark expression of sangiovese, densely packed, sappy and backward, with excellent breadth and a suggestion of saline minerality. Finishes with serious tannins and excellent lift. Comes across as a bit less sweet than the 2007 classico, but also fresher and more structured. Makes that wine seem warmer, but this one is also carrying 15% alcohol.
