Blackberries licorice and dried flowers on the nose. Full bodied with velvety tannins and lots of fruit. Whole and complete. This is balanced and really beautiful. Better after 2014.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa boasts a deep dark core of fruit. Ripe black cherries tar leather and licorice are some of the nuances that emerge from this resonant expressive Brunello. In 2006 La Casa shows plenty of muscle but without abandoning the house's medium-bodied style. Anise and menthol reappear on the creamy generous close. This is a beautiful deceptively medium-bodied Brunello from Caparzo. In particular I admire the way the wine turns minerally on the finish. The Vigna La Casa spent 36 months in Slavonian and French oak casks but of a slightly smaller size than those used for the straight Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
