Beautiful combination here of balanced orange and lemon rind and riper glazed cherries, terracotta and scorched earth. Mushroom too. Tightly wound and elegant with a persistent core of mineral acidity and finely...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2020

Caparzo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa opens to a very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond. The wine remains very tight and...

Decanter, February 2020

With an enviable position on the Montosoli hill, Caparzo's La Casa vineyard has been vinified separately since 1977 and is among the first single-vineyard bottlings in Montalcino. Like the regular Brunello, La Casa...

94+ Good full ruby. Brooding aromas of cassis, menthol, chocolate and minerals. Dense and juicy but slightly hard at present, with a floral nuance and nicely integrated acidity lending precision to the red fruit and...

Wine Spectator, April 2020

Wine & Spirits, April 2021

La Casa is a five-acre plot of vines planted in galestro soils on the Montosoli hill, just north of Montalcino's village walls. Its fruit shows good freshness for this warm vintage, coming together in this wine’s flavors...

Wine Enthusiast, December 2020

Aromas evoking scorched earth, leather, crushed mint and ripe dark-skinned berry lead the way along with whiffs of blue flower. Linear and elegantly structured, the taut palate starts off with dried Marasca cherry...

Tenuta Caparzo is a Tuscan wine estate in the Montalcino region known for its signature Brunello di Montalcino ‘Vigna La Casa’. It was founded in the late 1960’s by a group of friends who bought an old ruin with vineyards in Montalcino. The farm estate was renovated, modernized and planted with new vineyards.

In 1998, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, who owns the neighboring Altesino, purchased Caparzo and she immediately carried out her objective of combining tradition and innovation with the help of her son Igino and daughter Alessandra.

Caparzo, derived from “Ca’ Pazzo” as shown on some ancient maps, covers an overall surface area of 200 hectares. It includes 90 covered by vineyards, distributed over different hillsides in the borough of Montalcino. The vineyards are at a heights ranging from 720 to 985 feet above sea level. The soils ranges between sandy-clay, shale-clay (marl), shale-renaceous rich in skeleton, and sandy-stony. The exposure of the vineyards, the nature of the lands and the microclimates of the areas give fullness, age-ability and character to the Caparzo wines.

Caparzo's Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vigna la Casa was first produced in 1977. At the time little was known of terroir, and little attention was paid to the concept of zoning, which had only recently been introduced to Montalcino. In this case Caparzo was once again a pace setter, producing a “single vineyard” Brunello from one of the finest vineyards in the appellation.

With Brunello di Montalcino La Casa, Caparzo was also one of the first wineries to introduce barriques to Montalcino, producing a wine with a polite, elegant spirit. Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa is the fruit of a unique terroir, and expresses all of Caparzo's passion and experience in producing excellent wines.
