Moderate concentration, massive tannins this wine drinks more like Barolo (not that that's bad). Caparzo is always an excellent value

Medium body wine. Sour cherries, licorice, earthy tones, tabacco. Acidic upfront that fades with medium tannins.

Obviously still a baby, but more than enjoyable once decanted for a couple hours. Gorgeous tannins, red fruit, chalky texture.

05 and 06 vintages were better but really splitting hairs here.

Also, decanting helped.

Easy drinking and great Brunello. Good introduction to the great wines from Montalcino and constantly rated high. Good value for the price.
