With 95 points from both James Suckling and Vinous, this Brunello is one of the finest. It’s from the third generation Caprili estate, among the best family producers of the region, yet still little known. Suckling praised its “intensity and beauty”.

Founded in 1965 by Alfo Bartolommei, this remarkable family estate is one of the region’s star performers. It used to be part of the great Pieve Santa Restituta estate and is also a neighbour to the renowned Soldara. All in all, with its 21 hectares of vines, the property is perfectly situated to produce some of the very finest Brunellos. Every vintage, their wines gain top scores. Alfo’s three children – Paolo, Paola and Manuele – now run the estate, with grandson Giacomo as winemaker. They’ve been ratcheting up the quality in recent years – it is remarkable how this domaine is still relatively under the radar. Despite his youth and dynamism, Giacomo keeps methods fairly traditional, as well as organic. This is a mesmerising, complex red.

"Very decadent Brunello. Full-bodied and dense. Deeply interlocked layers of dark fruit. Chewy tannin" James Suckling
