Beautiful combination here of balanced orange and lemon rind and riper glazed cherries, terracotta and scorched earth. Mushroom too. Tightly wound and elegant with a persistent core of mineral acidity and finely wrapped-up tannins. Drink from 2021. James Suckling

Caparzo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa opens to a very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond. The wine remains very tight and crisp overall, but it does cede to more volume and puts on more weight as it opens in the glass. There is a pretty note of crushed stone or granite on the close. The La Casa vineyard site is characterized by clay soils broken up with shards of Galestro schist that adds to the cool and fresh profile of the wine. This lovely single-vineyard Brunello is almost ready to drink (wait a few more years), but it should also withstand the next 10 years of cellar aging should you decide to put your bottle aside. Some 15,000 bottles were produced. The wine was bottled in August 2019 and released in January 2020. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

Good full ruby. Brooding aromas of cassis, menthol, chocolate and minerals. Dense and juicy but slightly hard at present, with a floral nuance and nicely integrated acidity lending precision to the red fruit and violet flavors. The slightly tough tannins and the dumbed down fruit leave an impression of medicinal austerity on the long mouthcoating finish. Needs time

With an enviable position on the Montosoli hill, Caparzo's La Casa vineyard has been vinified separately since 1977 and is among the first single-vineyard bottlings in Montalcino. Like the regular Brunello, La Casa possesses surprising underling acidity which gives brightness and focus to the wine; the northern exposition of the plot certainly played a factor in this. Fresh herbs and pomegranate offset sunbaked earth and incense nuances. The palate is quite substantial and concentrated, with tactile tannins, though it stays fresh and fluent. Drinking Window 2021 – 2033 Michaela Morris - Decanter

Spicy cherry, raspberry and plum flavors are shaded by tobacco and earth notes in this savory red. Elegant and solidly built, with refined tannins upholding the lingering finish. Shows good sweetness courtesy of the ripe fruit. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,750 cases made, 300 cases imported. — BS – Wine Spectator

Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby. Hints of gingerbread hovering over a brooding fruit nose. Quite pure tangy cherry fruit on the palate paired with long, chewy tannins. (WS) Walter Speller – Jancis Robinson
