96 Wine Spectator, The Future #1? 2016 Caparzo Brunello

Happy Friday! Today's offer is a big deal and later this year, could end up being a really big deal. When the conservative-scoring Wine Spectator dishes out a 96 for a sub-$50 wine, it's an instant candidate for one of their Top 10 wines of the year (that's 10, not 100). It's the 3 Ps: Points, Price, Production amount. 2016 Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino hits all Ps; it is Spectator's highest rated/lowest priced Brunello from the mind-blowing 2016 vintage. 96 points, $43.95. The really big deal part is the potential for Caparzo '16 to be Wine Spectator's #1 wine of the year. No matter how it shakes out if you're a Brunello and/or Italian red fan, a hunter of wine values from exceptional vintages, or simply thirsty for great wine we highly recommend you lock yours in today. It arrives in September, just in time for fall shipping, but it'll sell out way before then.

$43.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($47.95 regular)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit are accented by floral, mineral and wild herbs in this alluring red. A backbone of dense, dusty tannins provides support, and the ripe fruit returns on the savory finish. Excellent length. Best from 2023 through 2043."

Arrives September 2021, just in time for fall shipping!
