Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino La Casa 2010
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine AdvocateCaparzo's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna la Casa opens to dark intensity with blackish-garnet undertones. The wine exhibits muscle and power with a large array of aromatic qualities that include dried cherry, spice, leather, tobacco, licorice and tar. It aspires to high complexity and intensity and it delivers on that promise. In the mouth, it shows beautifully tame tannins and a silky texture. Brunello Vigna la Casa lasts many long minutes on the palate. The wine should hold steadily over the next 15 years.
Wine SpectatorThere's plenty of cherry and strawberry fruit at the core of this red, wrapped in a cloak of tannins. Vibrant and elegant, but a bit rigid today. Best from 2018 through 2035.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of toasted oak, espresso, spiced plum, blue flower and menthol lead the nose. The tense palate offers dried cherry, fig, cooking spice, coffee and savory herb alongside still-raspy tannins. It closes on a licorice note.
