    I've always considered Capanna among the most classic style producers as they stick to traditional farming and the use of large barrels during the aging process. In the best vintages their wines are generally well structured with firm tannins and substantial acidity. Well, their 2010 is in a class of it's own as it is blessed with more of everything. Concentrated fruit, bold tannins, impressive acidity and overall freshness that combined, make this one of the most intriguing 2010 Brunellos. Put this one in the cellar for at least a couple of years or give it a good decant if opening it sooner.

    Patrizio Cencioni, Capanna’s owner, is a man of very few words, he lets his wine do the talking for him, he’s the strong, silent type, and you never quite know what’s going on behind his eyes. I wouldn’t play poker with him, yet I’d buy his wine. Capanna is a powerhouse; the nose is an array of wild cherry, chestnut, cinnamon, smoked meats, plum and cocoa. This is a wine with tannic structure yet so in balance it doesn’t really stand out and that is because it is so well balanced, all the pieces line up elegantly. On the palate the wine is a cauldron of molten fruit, spice, and leather and displays an extraordinary density. This is a powerful wine, it has everything, fruit, spice density, palate presence it is a marvel to behold, however this is a wine you’ll need to hold onto for awhile, this isn’t a pretty wine this is a stunningly gorgeous wine that will take a bit of time to take it all in. Drop it in your cellar for another 5-10 years, or if you have anyone you need to gift a Birth year wine for, this is it.

    Thus far one of the most open, expressive and forward of the 2010 Brunelli that I have tasted. The wine has a highly perfumed nose of sweet floral tones, Asian spices, ripe berries and raspberry coulis. Soft, ripe tannins, mouthfilling texture and good palate weight. There are still some terroir markers here, scorched earth, fresh leather...but they are overlain with a tad more primary fruit than most. Not a bad thing, this is showing the quality of the 2010 vintage without requiring too much patience!
