2016 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Eta May 2022

$54.99
2016 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Eta May 2022
The Capanna farm, owned by the Cencioni family since 1957, is situated in the Montosoli area considered the best in the territory, located in the northern sector of Montalcino. The estate was founded by Giuseppe Cencioni with the help of his sons Benito and Franco, making them one of the first farms to start during the modern period of Brunello. They started bottling their wines in the 1960s. Shortly after, Brunello di Montalcino was granted DOC status in 1966, which only helped their success with Giuseppe becoming one of the original 25 founders of the Consortium of Brunello di Montalcino.
Though the Campanna farm today reaches 20 hectares, it is still owned by the Cencioni family, with Amedeo Cencioni being the 4th generation to operate the estate. At the core, the Cencioni family are farmers and dedicate a significant amount of time to ensure the vines and environment are healthy and produce concentrated and ripe fruit through de-budding, leaf thinning, green harvesting, and organic farming practices.
2016 is an excellent year for Tuscany and is the basis for one of Capanna's best Brunellos of all time. A surprisingly classic yet approachable wine, showing the best the vintage has to offer. The Brunello di Montalcino is sourced from the property's oldest vines, some of which date back to the 60s, also seeing a classic cellar regimen 25-30 day maceration and fermentation completed in Slovanian Oak vats.
This is an outstanding Brunello, and while it is not as commonplace as some of the other producers of the region, it is a classic bottle from a great vintage worth checking out.

Jeb Dunnuck (Andrey Frick) 96+ pts! "The 2016 Brunello spent 36 months in classic Slavonian oak. The lifted aromatics upon opening quickly blow off and give way to more subtle floral tones, of fresh raspberry, dried herbs, and dusty earth. The palate is crisp and linear, with fine but angular tannins, refreshing citrus-like acidity, and a long finish. The 2016 is layered and complex within its transparency. There is a lot to love with this wine for those who enjoy traditional Sangiovese with brightness and lift. Check in now and over the next 20 years.<!--more-->Located in the Motosoli area, just north of the town of Montalcino, the CapAnna estate is run by fourth generation winemaker Amedeo and his father, Patrizio Cencioni. (Drink between 2021 - 2040)"

James Suckling 95 pts! "Gorgeous aromas of black cherry, cedar, leather and dried flowers follow through to a full body with firm, creamy tannins that are long and caressing. Tight and focused. Pretty clarity to this. Give this three or four years to open. Try after 2023.

Vinous (Eric Guido) 94 pts! "The 2016 Capanna Brunello di Montalcino is full of potential but is already so easy to like. Its bouquet is sweetly spiced and nuanced, showing dried roses which give way to a dusting of cedar and clove with crushed red berries and hints of flowery undergrowth. Silky textures envelope all that they touch in mineral-drenched cherry, propelled by zesty acids with building inner florals. That said, this is decidedly more feminine and lifted in character than I’m used to from this estate. It’s focused on purity throughout but with a balanced structure that will ensure over a decade of positive maturation. (Drink between 2026 - 2038)"
