Capanna Brunello di Montalcino 2009

Located north of Montalcino in Montosoli, Capanna was bought by the Cencioni family in 1957. This small estate dedicated to farming and vinifying Sangiovese Grosso is comprised of some of the best vineyards in Brunello, The vineyards are planted on a south-southeast facing slope on Galestro, a schist based soil which encourages slow and even ripening. No chemical fertilizers or herbicides are used and every effort is made to farm naturally. Capanna crafts modern wines that emphasize the fruit-forward components of the Sangiovese Grosso grape while allowing full expression of the rich terroir upon which the grapes are grown. [+]
