The color is ruby red, shading into garnet. Aromas of berries, significant acidic bone and firm tannins. It is recommended to uncork the bottle a few hours before serving. Ideal with red meats, roasts, game and aged cheeses.

Classic Sangiovese aromas of wild berry, forest floor, rose and new leather waft out of the glass along with whiffs of camphor. Delicious and smooth, the elegantly structured palate features ripe wild cherry, blood orange and licorice alongside polished tannins. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity—what a fantastic showing. It's already accessible but will age well for years to come. Drink 2022–2031.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a great first impression thanks to the purity and intensity of the fruit. Those two things-purity and intensity-can sometimes be uncomfortable bedfellows, but this expression from Caprili unites them in happy marriage. The bouquet opens to bright red fruit, cola, chopped mint and blue flower. There is a lot of beautiful energy on hand. The wine is smooth and silky, giving it both near and long-term appeal. This is a 45,000-bottle release.

Offering cherry, plum, iron, earth and floral aromas and flavors, this is vibrant and beautifully balanced. Well-structured, with the harmony and concentration to develop. Best from 2023 through 2043.

An initial burst of medicinal red fruits and exotic spice evolves into a more refined expression of dusty roses, cedar and wild strawberries, as the 2016 Caprili Brunello di Montalcino unfolds in the glass. The textures are silky in feel, contrasted by an intense wave of tart berries and salty minerals, all carried across a core of zesty acids. This shows the radiance of the 2016 vintage, along with rounded tannins which add poise without ever robbing the expression of its vibrancy, culminating in a totally classic and fully satisfying finale
