Capanna Winery Visit in Tuscany, Montalcino

I was referencing our Brunello di Montalcino tasting visits in the past article on our outing to Montalcino, Tuscany. Presently I might want to compose a progression of a couple of little articles about the wine sampling in every winery we’ve been. Alexandra Adamek, our sommelier have gave us the newseurope visit and momentarily brought us into the universe of Brunello di Montalcino.

The first was an unexpected treat for us, Capanna winery, were Alexandra took us on a radiant evening. For travelers or “undeveloped noses”, Capanna could be one of the little wineries that could blur among the substantially more renowned Casanova di Neri, Biondi Santi, and so on yet, we found a magnificent decision of Brunello di Montalcino and acquired understanding into the Sangiovese grapes. Capanna delivers however different wines than Brunello too (Rosso – Child Brunello, Moscadello, Pinot Grigio, and so on) at a dazzling incentive for cash.

Alexandra referenced that at a visually impaired tasting of red wines, their Brunello Riserva 2010 (the Brunello that we can track down on special just on January of the sixth year after the reap) was the second spot arranged just after the Ferrari of Brunello’s – Casanova di Neri. Obviously this data along with the perspective on the actual winery, the scene, intensified the flavor of the wines we tasted. Be that as it may, this is really the way in which wine is delighted in, right? It must be related to other positive feelings to be an extraordinary encounter and get its taste enhanced.

Recently, we were watching the SOMM Part II, a narrative waking us up to the work, the set of experiences, the way of life, and, surprisingly, the feelings that lie behind each extraordinary container of wine-the story, at the end of the day, behind the jugs of wine. It was referenced that there will never be been made extraordinary wine in terrible regions, it’s a question of energies; incredible wine remains closely connected with astounding scenes and delightful wineries, in the feeling of energy.

The Capanna winery, arranged in Montosoli slope most likely the best sub-region in the North of Montalcino is controlled by the Cencioni family, who pours the Tuscan genealogical information straight into these complicated wines.

Visiting the dynamite Capanna grape plantation offers the potential chance to find the interesting miniature environment and soil that feed the Sangiovese Grosso for Brunello di Montalcino, while it allows you to savor its captivating scene. Here we found out about: the pruning of the grapes (which ensures a great item even in less ideal years), the choice of grapes during the collect, the cautious wine making at controlled temperatures, long maturing in oak barrels/Croatian barrels for their absence of smells. Brunello makers could do without fragrant woods for their wines and the choice. Alexandra showed us how to “read” the wines: variety, body, structure, nose, taste and we checked also for the vital parts in wines that give the equilibrium: the minerality, the sharpness, the tannin on one hand and the liquor, the delicate quality and the sugar then again.


An area of around 12 hectares is developed as a grape plantation, and the other 11 hectares as an olive-forest. Its sublime position and the stony soil, along with the dry and vaporous environment, permits Capanna to frame a Brunello wine that is effortless and exquisite, reasonable for a long developing interaction. As a matter of fact, just a piece of the creation (matured for quite a long time in Slavonian oak barrels) is bound to become Brunello DOCG, while the other part becomes Rosso di Montalcino DOC (after a developing course of two years) or Rosso da Tavola (a red table wine). During the best classic years the best Brunello barrels are bound for Riserva and packaged following five years. At the point when packaged, the wine is likewise refined for a couple of months. text taken from IN VINO.

We tasted:

Pinot Grigio Sant’Antimo 2015 – light-bodied, a fragile white wine, is a characteristic matching for light dishes like starters or fish or mushrooms. A wine you can track down at a bargain following 6-8 months from the gather.

Rosso di Montalcino 2014 – an excellent Rosso, medium body, with tobacco, cherries and flavors in proof a piece tannic and youthful, requiring several additional years in the cellar. I figure one year in a cellar would further develop it yet it is drinkable currently: recollect that Rosso di Montalcino isn’t a reflection wine and needs food to adjust. Pasta with meat ragu is an ideal pair. This wine needs its 15 as long as year and a half to mature in the basement.

Capanna Sant Antimo 2010 – I tracked down dried organic products, cinnamon and solid and strong tannin. When you say solid and strong tannin individuals don’t actually want to attempt it: perhaps very tannin could be more exact?

The Brunello di Montalcino 2010, thick, dull and agonizing with a bundle of natural product forward tones. The wine making and it is truly fascinating: Alcoholic maturation with maceration of the skins (30-35 days) at a controlled temperature and unconstrained malolactic maturation, both in Slavonian oak tanks (where it stays for 6-8-months to progress in years process). It will progress in years in Slavonian oak containers for more than 36-38 months followed by maturing in bottles for somewhere around a half year. Just January of the fifth year from reap it is accessible discounted.

The Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010, a dim red conditioned with fragrances of dark cherry, licorice and mint, thickly loaded with an idea of mineral. It wrapped up with serious tannin and incredible lift. It could be matched with meat, pork, game (deer, venison), adult and hard cheddar and poultry. The Reserva needs a complicated food with long determination it is wonderful with meat on the off chance that you add truffles to it I would keep away from poultry. Hard full grown pecorino cheddar with honey is likewise wonderful together. You can get the opportunity to taste a Riserva just the January of the sixth year after the gather. The Riserva 2010 has been Delegated by Vini Buoni D’Italia.

Alexandra Adamek, sommelier at Select Tasting in Montalcino says: Capanna remains high among the nearby individuals and the expert’s viewpoint for their quality wines. What they miss here is only the showcasing greater wineries can manage. Furthermore, trust me that occasionally the focuses (otherwise known as Parker) you get for your Brunello are likewise connected with it. There are numerous little wineries in Montalcino and the quality can be very unique between them anyway Capanna is dependably an equivalent word of a great work. The Cencioni family was one of the originators behind Consorzio di Brunello, harking back to the 70’s and Patrizio is reappointed the Leader of Consorzio once more.
