Caprili Rosso di Montalcino 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastThe nose is initially shy but eventually reveals mature dark-skinned berry, leather and a whiff of sunbaked soil. Structured and enveloping, the smooth, full-bodied palate doles out fleshy Marasca cherry, juicy raspberry and star anise framed in chewy tannins. Drink through 2021.
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Rosso di Montalcino ages in Slavonian oak casks for ten months. The wine opens to bright fruit intensity with radiant cherry, spice and a waxy crayon-like note. The fruit is simple and lean, and the wine's flavor profile is raw and one-dimensional. There is a touch of cherry sweetness on the finish. Some 35,000 bottles were made.
