These Sangiove grosso grapes come from the Caprili vineyard, which is located 335 meters above sea level and is planted with vines that have an average age of 15 years. These canes are planted close together (4,000 canes per hectare) and each cane produces an average of about 1.5 to 2 kg. grapes. The family uses only natural yeasts for alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel barrels; cultivated yeasts are not allowed here. During the soaking of the peels, a period of about 25 days, the temperature is closely monitored and corrected if necessary. At Caprili, the family believes that it should be between 28 and 30° Celsius. After fermentation, the Brunello-in-the-making is aged for three years in Slavonian oak barrels. These barrels have different capacities: 30, 40 and 60 hectoliters. Ultimately, the Brunello di Montalcino remains in the bottle for at least 4 months, depending on the outcome of the fermentation, before it is put on the market. This is a serious Brunello di Montalcino: meaty, concentrated and with a powerful structure. The grainy tannin is beautifully ripe and appears firm yet friendly. The excellent balance between fruit aromas (mainly cherries), acids and tannins makes this wine very harmonious. Caprili's Brunello di Montalcino has spicy aromas of toasted oak and roasted almond husk.
