Wine AdvocateThe single-vineyard 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna la Casa is immediately distinguished by aromas of smoke, flint and dark fruit. This wine offers more depth and complexity compared to Caparzo's base Brunello from this same excellent vintage. Unlike the base Brunello, however, this wine will definitely require more time to open and flesh out as it continues its bottle evolution. The fruit is a little less accessible at this young stage in the wine's lifespan. It shows lots of energy and tightness at its core that should soften and blossom over the next 5 years. It should be worth the wait.
Wine SpectatorTextbook aromas and flavors of cherry, iron, almond, leather and tobacco are the highlights here. This starts out softly before showing deceptive balance and freshness on the lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.
Wine EnthusiastAlluring scents of chopped mint, dried rose, graphite, forest floor and wild berry waft out of the glass. It's ethereally elegant, offering red cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white pepper alongside bright acidity and firm, refined tannins. Drink 2023-2033.
