TASTING NOTE: The single-vineyard 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna la Casa is immediately distinguished by aromas of smoke, flint and dark fruit. This wine offers more depth and complexity compared to Caparzo's base Brunello from this same excellent vintage. Unlike the base Brunello, however, this wine will definitely require more time to open and flesh out as it continues its bottle evolution. The fruit is a little less accessible at this young stage in the wine's lifespan. It shows lots of energy and tightness at its core that should soften and blossom over the next 5 years. It should be worth the wait. Drink date: 2022-2035. Score - 94 (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2018) Price $ 79.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
