When Monica Larner of the Wine Advocate wrote, "I am experiencing a Capanna enlightenment. Looking back at my past scores (which are a few points lower on average compared to these), either I failed to appreciate these wines, or they made a huge jump forward in winemaking excellence this past year (despite the vintage difficulties). Maybe it's a bit of both," she recognized that even with the 2014, Capanna was turning out wines among the very best of Brunello. Then along comes the 2015 Capanna Brunello which we all now know as an exceptional vintage. James Suckling put it this way, "We admit that it is tempting to say that 2015 is Brunello di Montalcino’s best vintage ever, and it may very well be! It certainly compares to other great years of the appellation including 1997, 2006, 2007, and 2010." Situated in the Montosoli area north of Montalcino, the Cencioni family has been farming at Capanna since 1957 – and one of the 25 founding members the Brunello di Montalcino Consorzio.
