Brunello di Montalcino Caparzo 2017

Brunello di Montalcino by Caparzo has been one of the symbolic red wines of the Tuscan area for 50 years: robust and strongly territorial. Aged in large barrels for at least 3 years, it shows an intense ruby red tending to garnet, accompanied by a penetrating bouquet of ripe cherries, earthy sensations and nuances of mint and tobacco. The sip is full and vibrantly structured, with sweet tannins and long persistence
