Plums and dried flowers with violets and lavender and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, dense and fruity with a big and juicy palate, yet the round and firm tannins hold it all together and give it form. Drink after 2021.

Full and tactile, with racy acidity giving the wine’s deep flavors real cut and grip. Finishes with lingering saline nuances on the clean, refined back end. A rather uncompromising style of Brunello, but very true to type; this will also age extremely well. Capanna has always made excellent solid, traditional Brunellos, but it strikes me as being an estate on a real roll of late. -- Ian D'Agata

It reveals a nose of anise, dried red cherry, thyme, and fresh flowers. The sunniness of the vintage is present without adding heft, followed by juicy cherry fruit on the midpalate, with fine grained, approachable tannins. Drink 2015 now or over the next 15 years.

Giuseppe Cencioni purchased the estate in 1957 and it has been family-run ever since. Today, Cencioni's grandsons Patrizio and Amedeo tend the vineyard and the cellar, remaining true to Capanna's style which is restrained and firm rather than flashy or fleshy. Captivating savoury aromas reverberate as blood and rust notes on the palate. Dense fruit - typical of this vintage - is hemmed in by commanding tannins while tangy acidity cuts through the core. Drinking Window 2021 - 2031

Though backed by stiff tannins, the cherry and strawberry flavors at the core are pure and defined. Earth, iron and woodsy elements accent the fruit.

Earth, iron and woodsy elements accent the fruit. Rights itself in the end, showing fine equilibrium. Best from 2023 through 2042. — B.S.

The heat and sunshine of the growing season has contributed to the wine's accessible and slightly oxidative personality. Redcurrant, dried cherry, tilled earth and dried garden herb emerge from the bouquet. There is some sour cherry on the close, but nevertheless I would suggest a near-term drinking window. Try it alongside a gnocchi with spinach and Tuscan Pecorino cheese. - Monica Larner
