Caparzo's 2008 Brunello sits almost translucent in the glass displaying a garnet hue with faintly brick coloured edges. It's an elegant and refined Brunello reflecting Caparzo's style and the cooler vintage. True to form Sangiovese characteristics come through with cherry and red berry notes, anise, tobacco and smoke. The mouthfeel is silky with tart fruit, spice, and chewy tannins that are entering a mellower phase of development. Framed by an acidic backbone, this wine is food friendly. Excellent length.
