Winemaker Notes

Color is ruby, tending towards garnet with age. Bouquet is penetrating, ample, and extremely complex, with wild berry fruit, spice and vanilla. Palate is dry, warm, well balanced and austere, ample and persistent.

Try pairing with roasts and split-roasted meats, grilled meats, game, braised meats, and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim 

JS94 - James Suckling
Very aromatic with cedar, dried flower, cherry and smoke. Medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a polished and tight finish. Needs another three or four years to open.
RP94 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The single-vineyard 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna la Casa is immediately distinguished by aromas of smoke, flint and dark fruit. This wine offers more depth and complexity compared to Caparzo's base Brunello from this same excellent vintage. Unlike the base Brunello, however, this wine will definitely require more time to open and flesh out as it continues its bottle evolution. The fruit is a little less accessible at this young stage in the wine's lifespan. It shows lots of energy and tightness at its core that should soften and blossom over the next 5 years. It should be worth the wait.
WS93 - Wine Spectator
Textbook aromas and flavors of cherry, iron, almond, leather, and tobacco are the highlights here. This starts out softly before showing deceptive balance and freshness on the lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.
WE92 - Wine Enthusiast
Alluring scents of chopped mint, dried rose, graphite, forest floor and wild berry waft out of the glass. It's ethereally elegant, offering red cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white pepper alongside bright acidity and firm, refined tannins. Drink 2023–2033.
W&S92 - Wine & Spirits

This comes from a 12.5-acre parcel in the cool northern subzone of Montosoli, where the vines soak up sunshine on a southto-southeast-facing slope. Its enticing scents of lavender and thyme mingle with vibrant flavors of dark cherry and licorice; a year in tonneaux and two more in large oak casks contributed subtle leather and spice dimensions.
