Brunello di Montalcino di Capanna is one of the reference labels when it comes to wines from the most famous hills in Tuscany. It is a version with a classic and elegant face, which well expresses the fresh and refined character of the reds that come from the Montosoli area, on the north side of Montalcino. Quality grapes, vinifications and refinements that follow the best traditions of the territory, give a Sangiovese that expresses delicate and multifaceted aromas and deep aromas, which are enhanced in a harmonious and vertical sip. It is a bottle of particular value, to be tasted on a special evening, with a Florentine steak or a cut of Chianina.

Brunello di Montalcino is produced by a historic winery in the area. The Cencioni family has managed the Capanna estate since 1957. The vines are grown in the famous Montosoli cru, which is located at an altitude of about 300 meters above sea level, with a south-east exposure. The soils are mainly of clayey matrix, very rich in stones and skeleton. The climate is cool and breezy, with good temperature variations between day and night. Fermentation takes place in conical Slavonian oak vats at a controlled temperature, with maceration on the skins for about a month. The wine ages for about 40 months in Slavonian oak barrels and completes the refinement in the bottle before being put on the market.

Brunello Capanna wine is one of the most interesting labels of the appellation, perfect for those who want to gain insight into the crus of the area and understand the nuances and differences between the various exposures and altitudes of the famous Montalcino hill. In the glass it shows a brilliant ruby ​​red color, with light garnet reflections. The olfactory picture is rich, with aromas of violet, morello cherry, small red berries, hints of undergrowth and delicate spicy nuances. The sip is elegant and refined, with a ripe, satisfying fruit and dense and evolved tannins. The finish is very persistent, characterized by lively freshness and pleasant sapidity. Absolutely to try.
