My Personal Recommendation For YouCaparzo Rosso di Montalcino 2010 Tuscany;Italy Regular $22.99 Now $16.99
90pts Wine Spectator
2010 Tuscan vintage has shaped up to be a great vintage, perhaps one of the
greatest. It began cooler, reducing flowering yields and ended with a very
late, warm harvest.
wines possess stunning depth, well-delineated aromatics and massive structure.
If to draw comparisons with recent years, the 2010â€™s have the aromatics of
2004, the fruit density of 2007â€™s and the structure of 2006â€™s!
newest arrival to Grapeswine, Caparzoâ€™s Rosso di Montalcino, is a Toscana
that is able to deliver the finest expression of the Sangiovese varietal and
the hailed 2010 vintage!
The Caparzo vineyards lie around the
small medieval village of Montalcino (pictured), and they often experience one
of the warmest and driest climates of all the Italian wine regions. This arid
zone typically receives an average annual rainfall of less than 28 inches, far
in contrast to neighboring Chianti, whose annual average is 36 inches or
more. Inevitably, these local Sangiovese grapes tend to struggle to hold
every drop of precious water. The terroir of the Montalcino region has also
provided an area where Sangiovese ripens more fully and consistently than
anywhere else in Tuscany. These factors combined contribute to the body, color,
extract and tannins commonly associated with the regionâ€™s prized Brunello di
Montalcinos â€“ but at a fraction of the price!
â€śRich and full of juicy plum, cherry
and sweet berry notes, this red oozes charm without sacrificing varietal
character. Harmonious and long. Drink now through 2016. 2,000 cases imported.â€ť

â€śCaparzo delivers a killer Rosso di
Montalcino from one of the most anticipated vintages of the past 10 years. It
is intense and clean, with polished berry aromas of black cherry and red
currant that are backed by savory spice and leather.â€ť â€” Monica
Larner/Wine Enthusiast (12/31/2012).
