About the wine

The Capanna farm, owned by the Cencioni family since 1957, is situated in the Montosoli area, to the north of Montalcino. It was founded by Giuseppe Cencioni and, helped by his sons Benito and Franco, it was one of the first farms of the modern period of Brunello. The farm is still family run from both a farming and winemaking viewpoint.

TASTING NOTES

A deep ruby red colour with garnet hues. Delicate bouquet of red fruit and a hint vanilla. Very aromatic and persistent. The wine is harmonious with excellent round tannins and structure, Great long finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Pairs well with roasted red meats, game and aged cheeses.

FRIARWOOD SAYS

A powerful yet very elegant wine. We recommend letting it breathe at least 30 minutes before serving.
