The Capanna farm has been owned by the Cencioni family
since 1957 and is located north of Montalcino, which is
considered one of the best vineyards for producing Brunello.
The 2007 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino is a lovely expression
of variety and territory—a true celebration of this austere yet
sophisticated red wine from southern Tuscany.

"An amazing and impressive feat of winemaking, this riserva is so tightly wound with gorgeous aromatic intensity, it peels back, layer after layer, and evolves smoothly the more you leave it in the glass. Not drinking it immediately is difficult because of the delicious quality of fruit on display here and the lush, soft mouthfeel."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"A drop-dead gorgeous wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Capanna caresses the palate with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, spices, licorice and mint. Layered, polished and exceptionally beautiful, the 2007 impresses for its silkiness and finesse. This is one of the most feminine, gracious wines of the year. It is also one of the freshest wines of the vintage. All in all, these wines are a terrific showing from La Capanna."
