With 95 points from Wine Advocate and 94 from Suckling, 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. WA praises its "purity and intensity”.

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 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, so it's remarkable how this domaine has remained relatively under the radar. Despite his youth and dynamism, Giacomo keeps methods fairly traditional, as well as organic. This is a mesmerising, complex red.

"Bright red fruit, cola, chopped mint and blue flower. A lot of beautiful energy. Smooth and silky" Monica Larner
