Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 750ml 2007      
Sku: 1808574*

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 aromas of plums and blackberries with notes of dark chocolate. The powerful core underlies the fleshy exterior of the wine. Full-bodied with a long aftertaste.

A drop-dead gorgeous wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Capanna caresses the palate with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, spices, licorice and mint. Layered, polished and exceptionally beautiful, the 2007 impresses for its silkiness and finesse. This is one of the most feminine, gracious wines of the year. It is also one of the freshest wines of the vintage. All in all, these wines are a terrific showing from La Capanna.

Technical notes
Harvested by hand and immediately destemmed, the grapes fermented on their skins for 30 days in temperature controlled Slovenian oak vats, after which the wine was transferred to age in large Slovenian oak uprights.
