A smooth and silky, big-boned Brunello with juicy cherry, raspberry, earthy and meaty flavours on the palate. Vibrant acidity for food. Pair with spaghetti and meatballs.

|Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Terrific value for a wine from Montalcino that shows great typicity for the area. A hint of rust, dried cherry and leather with a dusty elegant finish. Try with a sweet potato and sage parmesan gratin. @wrightwineblog

One of the nicest values in Rosso di Montalcino I've seen in a while. The nose shows hints of Brunello elements with a floral note over a solid cherry fruit and perhaps a licorice note. An old world level of fruit which will not overpower your palate. The cherry elements are in the foreground with a rose petal note and spice element on the palate. Enough acidity to pair with tomatoes, but not so much to loose your guests. I predict this one will age well for a couple of years - buy a few because you likely won't see this price for a Rosso again.

nice and easy drinking rosso di montalcino. 2016 is a good idea for Tuscany and this wine simply reflects the vintage. Fruity, smooth, balanced with a touch of acid and tannin on the finish. Again, another sipping wine to start the meal without the need to pair with any food.
|From the Tuscany wine region, Caparzo 2016 Rosso Di Montalcino is great value under $20. Smoky on the nose fragrant with pink florals and red berry aromas, full-bodied and mouth-watering with tart cherry, raspberry, earthy, meaty flavours. Pair with a game stew or sausages. - Community Wine Reviews|
