ABOUT THE WINE
The Capanna farm, owned by the Cencioni family since 1957, is situated in the Montosoli area, to the north of Montalcino. Founded by Giuseppe Cencioni and 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, with 11 hectares out of 23 devoted to olive groves.

TASTING NOTES
A deep ruby red colour with garnet hues. Delicate bouquet of red fruit and a hint of vanilla. Smoke, roses and liquorice on the palate; very aromatic and persistent, with excellent round tannins and structure, and a long finish. The extra time in oak has served to mellow the tannins in the wine, creating a broader palate and a more refined drinking experience.

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 for at least 30 minutes before serving.
