Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Bright, with cherry and raspberry fruit, this Brunello is elegant and charming. Accents of mineral and peppery greens-arugula, mizuna-develop on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2032.
The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a ripe and nicely balanced effort from a vintage that threw its share of curveballs at producers. The wine rises above those difficulties, showing clearly delineated tones of cherry, plum and spice. It is crisp and lean in terms of mouthfeel, with the shallow depth of flavors that is definitely characteristic of the 2014 vintage. This easy-drinking Brunello ages in traditional oak casks (made with Slavonian oak) for two years. Production is very generous with 160,000 bottles made. Drink Date: 2019-2029.
Strawberry, rose and botanical herb aromas waft out of the glass. On the sleek, accessible palate, polished tannins and fresh acidity interlace sour cherry, pomegranate and ground clove. Drink through 2022.
