Five decades of glorious Brunello bottlings have firmly secured Caparzo's place among the elite of producers in Montalcino. Consistency across multiple vintages – seemingly no matter the conditions – has made Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini a household name for lovers of outstanding Sangiovese, not to forget her Rosso di Montalcino! Caparzo's unrelenting consistency is no doubt due in great part to Elisabetta's commitment, coupled with winemaker Massimo Bracalente's decades of tenure with the estate's multiple terroirs. But there's no questioning the most important aspect of the Caparzo estate, which attracts collectors even more fervently in top vintages. The finest Rosso yet from Elisabetta as she goes from strength to strength. Serious Tuscan bargain, and among the very best Rosso di Montacino of the vintage.


Lively red color. Exceptionally perfumed nose reminds of red fruits, menthol, coffee and fresh herbs. Dense and fresh with flavors closely echoing the aromas. Boasts outstanding acid-fruit-tannin balance and a silky-sweet mouthfeel; I tasted two different bottles just to be sure, and based at least on what I tasted, this Rosso is a real knockout, in fact one of the very best from the 2018 vintage.
