Caprili is a Brunello estate in the southwestern sector of the Montalcino appellation near the hamlet of Tavernelle. They are considered one of the old guard of Montalcino producers as they were established in 1965 when they split off from the famous Pieve Santa Restituta estate. The estate is very well located, next to Pieve Santa Restituta and adjacent to Soldera. Run by the youthful and dynamic Giacomo Bartolommei, the estate is comprised of 21 hectares of vineyards. The exposure is south-southeast between 225-340 meters in elevation. The soil there has a bit more sand than in other parts of Montalcino giving the wines elegance and bright aromatics. It is also a sector that benefits from regular circulation of wind currents that come off the sea to the west. This air flow pattern greatly reduces disease pressure which in turn allows the winery to farm organically. It also provides a cooling effect in warmer years to help insure freshness and balance to the wines. 

In the cellar at Caprili, they work traditionally and naturally with a goal of keeping the winemaker¹s impact on the wine to a minimum. The Brunello ferments in stainless steel with native yeasts for about seven to eight days followed by a 15-20 day maceration. The Brunello goes into large neutral casks for 3 years whereas the Riserva stay in botti for an additional year. Stylistically, the wines are in the traditional camp of Montalcino, approachable without being rustic. Classic Tuscan aromas and flavors, dusty dried cherries, with a kiss of leather and spice and an underpinning of minerality. Theines of real pedigree without the exaggerated tariffs.

Color: Vibrant ruby red color. Bouquet: Intense and fruit-rich on the nose Taste: it has a dry, warm and slightly tannic palate with a marked bitterish note in the finish. Food Pairings: Pasta with red sauce, risottos, light meat dishes.

This savory young red showcases ripe black cherry and black plum flavors while flashes of spice and earthy truffle tones lend depth. It's full-bodied, with taut, close-grained tannins that lend a firm structure. Drink through 2026.
