Caparzo Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG Riserva Wine is only produced in the finest vintages, from grapes selected personally by winemaker Massimo Bracalente. The grapes are in part from from vineyards located in the northern part of the Montalcino Appellation, at an elevation of 220 meters above sea level, and in part from vineyards south of Montalcino, at an elevation of 270 meters. In both cases the vineyards are on sandy-stony south-southeast facing Pliocene terrains. The Riserva begins to show its best several years after bottling. Produced in limited quantities, the Riserva is destined to especially passionate, attentive wine lovers. A classic, complete Riserva able to awaken unique sensations in the most expert palates. The first Caparzo Riserva Brunello di Montalcino DOCG was produced in 1980. The wine has the capacity to age for up to 40 years.
