Tuscany

We have been looking for a Brunello estate for quite some time On my last trip to Italy I spent the greater part of a week tasting my way through majestic Brunellos and delicious, juicy Rossos. I found that there were really two schools of wine; the leaner, earthier and more refined (Burgundian if you like) and the more opulent, fruit-driven and bigger style. I love the style of the latter, but it was the former wines that really grabbed my attention. The wines really spoke of their terroir, their sense of place, the rolling hills where they were grown and the quiet hand of the men who carefully and respectfully guided these into the hands of their drinker. What I found were wines made by the Cencioni family.

‘What I found were wines made by the Cencioni family.’

 Giuseppe Cencioni bought the land that was to become the famed estate in 1957 in Montosoli, just north of Montalcino. Together with his sons, Benito and Franco, Giuseppe started making and bottling his own wines in 1960 and when the DOC was created in 1966, Giuseppe was one of the founders of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino.The estate is now run by Benito’s son, Patrizio, who is in turn joined by his considered and contemplative son, Amadeo. If ever there was a wine that spoke to the character of its maker, Capanna must be it! It’s obvious to see the deep knowledge and care that they both hold for this place and the work that their father and grandfathers have done before them. They both reside on the estate and you truly do feel the connection between man and land when you visit.

The south-easterly exposure of the vineyards and the clay-rich soil together with meticulous work in the vineyards ensures that the vines have a healthy growing period and produce wines of elegance, structure and acidity.

I am very proud to present Capanna to you. We have four wines and they are all very typical of the house style. I highly recommend that you try these wines. Regardless of price, you can feel confident that they will deliver. We only have a limited amount of wines for this first offer but more is on its way to Australia.
