One of our favorite inexpensive family-owned Brunellos, Capanna comes from a farm owned by the Cencioni family since 1957.
Giuseppe Cencioni started bottling his own wines in the 1960's and after Brunello di Montalcino was granted DOC status in 1966, Giuseppe was one of the 25 founders of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. The Capanna farm is still family run from both a farming and winemaking viewpoint with help from noted oenologist Paolo Vagaggini.
Aged in Slavonian oak casks for 3 years, followed by aging in bottles for about a year. Capanna Brunello di Montalcino has an ethereal nose of red fruits and vanilla. The palate expands the red fruit notes with a balance of tannins and structure. This wine pairs excellently with roast red meats, game and aged cheeses. A great value.
