"Plums and dried flowers with violets and lavender and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, dense and fruity with a big and juicy palate, yet the round and firm tannins hold it all together and give it form. Drink after 2021."

"Bright deep red. Musky, bracing aromas and flavors of red cherry and orange peel, tarragon and violet. Full and tactile, with racy acidity giving the wine’s deep flavors real cut and grip. Finishes with lingering saline nuances on the clean, refined back end. A rather uncompromising style of Brunello, but very true to type; this will also age extremely well. Capanna has always made excellent solid, traditional Brunellos, but it strikes me as being an estate on a real roll of late."

"Capanna is one of the pillars of the Montalcino denomination. Giuseppe Cencioni purchased the estate in 1957 and it has been family-run ever since. Today, Cencioni's grandsons Patrizio and Amedeo tend the vineyard and the cellar, remaining true to Capanna's style which is restrained and firm rather than flashy or fleshy. Captivating savoury aromas reverberate as blood and rust notes on the palate. Dense fruit - typical of this vintage - is hemmed in by commanding tannins while tangy acidity cuts through the core. Drinking Window 2021 - 2031"

"Though backed by stiff tannins, the cherry and strawberry flavors at the core are pure and defined. Earth, iron and woodsy elements accent the fruit. Rights itself in the end, showing fine equilibrium. Best from 2023 through 2042."
"Tasted blind. Mid ruby. Savoury and minerally nose with a suggestion of pine but not from oak. A fantastic core of concentrated, tangy fruit on the palate with firm, clayey tannins. Great balance and chew. 17.5/20 points. (WS)"
