Brunello di Montalcino is a myth of Italian Winemaking from Tuscany! La Casa red wine from Caparzo's Vineyard enjoys excellent sunshine, an important factor for this sector of the northern part of the Montalcino area, which has lower than average temperatures for the region. The wine is aged in French oak, 12 months in tonneaux, 24 months in large 3000l barrels and then for at least 8 months in bottle. La Casa is only made in the best vintages.
Brunello di Montalcino La Casa by Caparzo has deep rich, brooding and complex nose, full of plump blackberry and griottine cherries with a hint of mint, followed by lingering earth and spice. Luscious on the palate, full bodied, good tannins and acidity but the wine still retains a real sense of elegance. This wine has a long life ahead of it, but still offers the consumer lots of pleasure now.
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Brunello di Montalcino La Casa by Caparzo is with steak with mushrooms and polenta, rabbit ragu with parpadelle, rich stews and braises, aged hard cheeses.
The Winery: Caparzo

This selection of the best vineyards, allows Caparzo to draw the best fruit from every vintage.
