Last year Caprili was our best-selling Brunelllo and for good reason, there are few wines presenting this quality out of the region at this price point. The critically-adored and sommelier-beloved 2016 vintage just arrived! Caprili is a Brunello estate in the southwestern sector of the Montalcino appellation near the hamlet of Tavernelle. They are considered one of the old guard of Montalcino producers as they were established in 1965, when they split off from the famous Pieve Santa Restituta estate (ahem, Gaja's estate!). The estate is extremely well located, next to Pieve Santa Restituta but also immediately adjacent to Soldera. As such, it is no surprise they are making great wine at Caprili.  The bigger surprise is that they are still very much 'under-the-radar'!? Stylistically, the wines are in the traditional camp of Montalcino, approachable without being rustic. The generosity we attribute to their location in the warmer subzone of Tavernelle. Classic Tuscan aromas and flavors, dusty dried cherries, with a kiss of leather and spice and an underpinning of minerality. The Ad Alberto is their top bottling from the picture perfect 2015 vintage.
