Filippo tastes the Caprili Rosso di Montalcino 2018 for the Brunello Wine Tasting.
The Caprili family knows the local terrain and soil conditions like the backs of their hands. Having worked this land as both agricultural experts and wine producers for at leat 3 generations, the soil and the lands are deeply rooted within their daily life and experiences.
Preferring to yield the wine-making process as much as possible to the grapes themselves, and the natural processes of vinification, the approach and strategy of the Caprili wine estate is to allow as much to happen as possible without external or non-biological interventions necessary.
A simple philosophy, but one that has yielded truly revolutionary results, as evinced by recurring Wine Spectator nomination to their Top 100 wines released per year for the Caprili Brunello 2015 vintage.
Filippo Bartolotta, Tuscan grape-trotter, features a nuanced tasting of the Caprili wine estate’s Rosso di Montalcino 2018 selection. Are you curious about what this wine will express? Surely you’ll be in for a treat as you explore a genuine Tuscan classic with Filippo.
We love wines and wineries that emphasize their origins, their lands that give them so much, and the Caprili family has masterfully tailored their wines following this very principle.
