2006 Caparzo Riserva Brunello Di Montalcino

"Mid ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Candied and savoury at the same time, with a very ripe and sweet finish. Drink 2012 to 2018. (WS)" (02/12) 15 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages WINE: "Ruby red colour tending to garnet with ageing. Pervasive bouquet, very generous and varied, with hints of soft fruit. Pair with roasted, grilled meat, game, braised meat, mature cheese." "Produced only across the better vintages, Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a meticulous wine selection intended for Brunello that completed the 36-month ageing in 50Hl casks. It also undergoes a 12-month bottle ageing before its introduction on the market." "Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is matured for a period of three years in French and Slavonia oak barrels of 30 Hl and refined in the bottle for one year. Riserva wines are only and exclusively made in the best vintages from carefully selected grapes and only reach their perfect expression after several years of refinement. Produced in a limited number of bottles, the Riserva particularly targets wine connoisseurs and experts." -Winery [+]
