About

93

“Pretty ripe fruit and hints of fresh mushrooms and wet earth. Medium to full body, polished, velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Drink in 2020.”

92 Wine Enthusiast

"Red berry, pressed violet, tilled earth and new leather are some of the aromas you'll find on this. On the concentrated palate, notes of licorice, clove and tobacco accent a core of black cherry set against a backbone of firm fine-grained tannins. A coffee note wraps up the finish."

92 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

“What I most like about the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is its sense of purity and focus. This wine delivers a straight-shooting and honest interpretation of Sangiovese. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, pressed flower and moist earth. Background aromas include exotic spice and tobacco. In all, this Brunello offers a savory and dry mouthfeel with good potential for further aging evolution. Some 20,000 bottles are made.”

91+ Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Good full red. Aromas and flavours of minty red currant, crushed rocks, and orange peel. At once plump and juicy, with an impressive delicacy on the smooth but vibrant, long finish. Youthful but finely grained tannins need another couple of years to resolve fully. One of the best young Capanne Ricci Brunellos I have memory of."

Product Description:

"Tenimenti Ricci (also known as Capanne Ricci) is a consistent producer from the Sant’Angelo in Colle subzone in the southern, warmer part of the Montalcino appellation.

100% Sangiovese, Ricci Brunello is ruby red in color with slight garnet hues. Intense, soft, and spicy on the nose. Great tannic structure in the mouth. Well-balanced and elegant on the palate with a long finish. Pairs well with roasts, grilled meats, game, and aged cheeses." - Importer
