Caparzo's Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Caparzo's Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is only produced in the finest vintages, from grapes selected personally by winemaker Massimo Bracalente. The grapes are in part from from vineyards located in the northern part of the Montalcino Appellation, at an elevation of 220 meters above sea level, and in part from vineyards south of Montalcino, at an elevation of 270 meters. In both cases the vineyards are on sandy-stony south-southeast facing Pliocene terrains. The Riserva begins to show its best several years after bottling. Produced in limited quantities, the Riserva is destined to especially passionate, attentive wine lovers. A classic, complete Riserva able to awaken unique sensations in the most expert palates. The first Caparzo Riserva Brunello di Montalcino DOCG was produced in 1980. The wine has the capacity to age for up to 40 years.

Caparzo's Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vigna la Casa

Caparzo's Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vigna la Casa can be considered a true enological gem, and not just in terms of Montalcino. La Casa derives its name from having been the farm where some of the tenant farmers who worked for the owners of Palazzo Montosoli, which is at a distance of a few hundred meters, lived. The first vintage of Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa was produced in 1977. At the time little was known of terroir, and little attention was paid to the concept of zonation, which had only recently been introduced to Montalcino. In this case Caparzo was once again a pace setter, producing a “Single Vineyard” Brunello from one of the finest vineyards in the Appellation. With Brunello di Montalcino La Casa, Caparzo also was one of the first wineries to introduce barriques to Montalcino, producing a wine with an polite, elegant spirit. Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa is the fruit of a unique terroir, and expresses all of Caparzo's passion and experience in producing excellent wines.

Brunello di Montalcino

Caparzo produced its first vintage of Brunello di Montalcino in 1970, when the situation in Montalcino was very different than it is now. At the time there were only 13 wineries in Montalcino, and this makes Caparzo one of the historic Brunello producers. The distinguishing characteristic of Caparzo's Brunello di Montalcino is clearly the origin of its Sangiovese. Indeed, the estate is one of the few in Montalcino that has vineyards in the various geographic areas of the Appellation. What might seem to be just a detail is instead quite positive, because the different locations of Caparzo's vineyards allow the estate to draw the most from the different microclimates and terroirs present in Montalcino. The grapes harvested from the vineyards in the various areas of the appellation are carefully selected to lay the foundations for a complex wine that brings together all of the characteristics that make Brunello one of the the world's most sought after wines.

Company details

THE CELLAR: TRADITION WITH INNOVATION

In no other place of the farm estate tradition and innovation perfectly combine as in the cellar. Here, the entire grapes are unloaded on a line that is able to separate automatically all the green parts that the destemmer is not able to remove. A selecting belt allows the specialised personnel to carry out another visual control on each berry. The capacity of the wine-making cellar exceeds 10,000 hectolitres. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats designed by us to support the traditional operations of temperature control, pumpover, délestage, pigeage and aeration by means of a computerised system. Here, wine technology is completely at the service of the manual ability of man. The capacity of the ageing cellar is ca. 6,000 hectolitres. The type of woods used varies according to the type of wine. Caparzo, according to tradition, uses only big barrels for classical products and i.e. Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., Riserva and Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C. The ageing of the 2 “cru” is different: Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. Vigna La Casa passes the first 12 months in French durmast barriques and then 24 months in French durmast 30-hectolitre barrels; Rosso di Montalcino d.o.c. La Caduta, 12 months in French durmast 700-litre casks. Ageing is more modern for Cà del Pazzo, our Supertuscan, that ages 24 months in French durmast barriques and for Le Grance, complex dry white wine that passes 12 months in French durmast 350-litre casks. Late-vintage Moscadello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., traditional sweet wine, ages 24 months in French durmast barriques. The scrupulous care in the vineyard is transferred to the cellar working. The result? All you have to do is to open a bottle of Caparzo and you will find all the care and attention of a ritual that is repeated year in year out.
