2014 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Tuscany, Italy (750ml)
The 2014 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino is a deep ruby red color with garnet hues. Ethereal aroma, of red fruit and vanilla, persistent. The taste is harmonious, excellent tannicity and structure, very persistent. Pair this wine alongside roast red meats, game and aged cheeses.
Here's another surprise hit from what was not, objectively speaking, an easy vintage. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino defies the odds to deliver a medium dark appearance and a structured, mid-weight style. The wine delivers impressive intensity and balanced integrity that transcends both the bouquet and the palate. Dark fruit flavors of blackberry and dried cherry segue to spice, grilled herb and campfire ash. I am impressed especially because I appreciate how hard it was to achieve this level of quality and intensity in 2014.

Ethereally elegant, this opens with alluring aromas of woodland berry, fragrant blue flower and wild herb. The bright linear palate is already accessible, offering wild red cherry and baking spice set against lithe tannins and racy acidity.

A fresh and easy Brunello with cherry and orange-peel character, medium body and a clean and crisp finish. Fine tannins.
