1990 Caparzo La Casa. Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy.
Wine SpectatorThis excellent estate has turned out two large-scaled, tannic, backward Brunellos that appear to be among the more concentrated wines of the vintage. The 1990 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa is one of the few opaque, saturated-colored Brunellos of the vintage. The nose offers up intense aromas of ripe berries, tobacco-tinged, leathery, smoky, roasted herbs, and grilled meat. There is huge flavor extraction, massive tannin, extraordinary density and richness, and a monster finish. This wine is considerably thicker and richer than the Brunello di Montalcino (green label) bottling, and in need of 5-7 years of cellaring. This is an outstanding example of this excellent vintage, but do not expect the tannin to completely melt away. 91pts RP"
"Big and voluptuous Brunello. Aromas of plums, berries and wet earth, following through to a full body with velvety tannins and a sumptuous finish. Soft and cuddly wine. Drink now through 2010. 1,500 cases made.
