750ml      
Sku: 1701240

Lead Time 5 day lead-time required Why?

Located north of Montalcino in Montosoli, Capanna was bought by the Cencioni family in 1957. This small estate dedicated to farming and vinifying Sangiovese Grosso is comprised of some of the best vineyards in Brunello, The vineyards are planted on a south-southeast facing slope on Galestro, a schist based soil which encourages slow and even ripening. No chemical fertilizers or herbicides are used and every effort is made to farm naturally. Capanna crafts modern wines that emphasize the fruit-forward components of the Sangiovese Grosso grape while allowing full expression of the rich terroir upon which the grapes are grown.

Tasting notes
Thick muscular and broad on the palate with leather, green tea, spice. The powerful core underlies the fleshy exterior of the wine. Full-bodied with a long aftertaste.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Apr 2012)
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.

Technical notes
Harvested by hand, immediately destemmed and fermented on its skins for 30 days in temperature controlled Slovenian oak vats after which it is transferred to age in large Slovenian oak uprights for 48 months.
