Antonio Galloni Vinous
Dark red. Aromas of dark cherry, peppery plum, fresh herbs and tarry oak. Dense and full in the mouth, with sneaky depth to the dark cherry, underbrush and aromatic herb flavors. Finishes vibrant, with fine tannins and very good freshness.

Wine Advocate
The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a much more austere and stern wine with a stronger sense of structure and acidity at the back. Smoky graphite tones intermingle with dried cherry and cassis. It’s a wine that expresses itself from the inside out, starting with delicate aromas that build in strength as the wine airs in the glass. The polished finish is characterized by lasting notes of tobacco and licorice.

Wine Spectator
This is dense, showing cherry, plum, leather and earth notes, matched to a chewy texture. Just a bit dry on the finish now, but long and elegant. This should come around in time.

Winery Information
The Caprili estate spreads out over an area of 58 hectares in the southwest territory of the Municipality of Montalcino on the hillside which slopes down towards the Orcia and Ombrone rivers.
Of the total property, 15.5 hectares of the land is covered with vines. Sangiovese Grosso is cultivated on a total of 14.5ha for Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. and Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C.G. Trebbiano, Malvasia and Vermentino varieties are planted on 0.8 hectares of land for S. Antimo Bianco D.O.C., while Moscadello is grown on the remaining 0.7 hectares in order to produce wine of the same name, Moscadello di Montalcino D.O.C.
The estate also has four hectares of olive groves for its excellent extra-virgin olive oil classified with the marque “Denominazione di Origine Protetta Terre di Siena” – Protected Denomination of Origin for oil produced in the area of Siena.

Then, matured for 48 months in big barrels by Slavonian oak followed by 6 months in bottle. When young is austere and has a solid tannic structure, reaches its peak after 5-7 years in bottle thanks to the depth and concentration that allow it to achieve a well-balanced flavor profile.
