Critic Reviews
93 points, James Suckling
“This is a pretty and mature Brunello with dried-cherry, cedar, sandalwood and fresh-leather character. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Dusty texture. Fascinating. Drink now.”

93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"93 points. The single vineyard 2004 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa is a sweet, layered offering that blossoms on the palate with notable elegance and class. The wine continues to build, showing terrific volume and density as its dark fruit accompanies the tannins all the way to the finish. This is an intense, brooding Brunello in need of a bottle age, but its qualities are impossible not to admire even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024."

93 points. A floral and perfumed nose, with raspberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, with racy tannins and a dense yet refined palate. A little tight still. Give it a little more bottle age. Best after 2010.

91 points, International Wine Cellar
"91 points. Good deep red. Flamboyantly lively aromas of maraschino cherry, minerals, licorice, flowers and building Christmas spices. Round, sweet and pliant; a sexy, rather modern-style fruit bomb, with rich, sappy flavors of cherry, raspberry and spices. Finishes with dusty tannins and impressive energy."

points, Decanter
"Four Stars! Highly Recommended! Deliciously savoury wine of very good length. Very perfumed, elegant and attractive with a lot of finesse. From 2010."

About The Winery
The origins of the place named Caparzo are still unknown. According to some people, the name is derived, as shown by ancient maps, from Ca’ Pazzo; according to others, the term should derive from the Latin Caput Arsum, indicating 'a place touched by sun”. The history of Caparzo dates back to the end of the 1960s at the dawning of Brunello di Montalcino, when a group of friends, fond of Tuscany and of wine, purchased an old ruin with vineyards at Montalcino. The farm estate was renovated, modernized, and new vineyards were planted. In a short time, Caparzo made itself known in the Brunello market. In 1998, 30 years after the first rows of vines were planted, the farm estate came to a turning point when Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini purchased Caparzo. With the help of her son, Igino, and daughter, Alessandra, she immediately carried out her objective: combining tradition with innovation to create a high-quality wine that is the expression of an excellent territory.
