Top Montalcino Values: Caparzo and Caprili

Great value from Montalcino today: 93 points Vinous, "one of the very best of the vintage," sub $20, and one to snatch up quickly! And in case you missed it the first time around, Caprili Brunello di Montalcino, 95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended, and sub $45 has this looking like an early contender for a high placement in Spectator's Top 100. Here's to sunny skies and thoughts of a perfect pasta dish and glass of Montalcino's finest!

$19.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($21.95 regular)

93 points Vinous: "Exceptionally perfumed nose reminds of red fruits, menthol, coffee and fresh herbs. Dense and fresh with flavors closely echoing the aromas. Boasts outstanding acid-fruit-tannin balance and a silky-sweet mouthfeel; I tasted two different bottles just to be sure, and based at least on what I tasted, this Rosso is a real knockout, in fact one of the very best from the 2018 vintage."

Us: Excellent, classic Montalcino character. It's fresh and vibrant with great breadth on the finish. Hard to find Rosso this good for the price.

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($49.95 regular)

95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Offering cherry, plum, iron, earth and floral aromas and flavors, this is vibrant and beautifully balanced. Well structured, with the harmony and concentration to develop. Best from 2023 through 2043."
