Caparzo 2013 Brunello DI Montalcino (DOCG)

Caparzo 2013 Brunello DI Montalcino (DOCG), $29.74-$39.99, 92 points, poured a vibrantly bright ruby red with a bursting orange/red penumbra, broad clear meniscus, and moderately dense legs.
Aromas of earthy cherry fruit nuanced with mulling spices were light and lovely.
Medium-bodied (bone-dry) with mouthwatering acidity and a fine grainy plank of tannin supported tasty pure flavors of Orange pekoe tea, red cherry, pomegranate, and red raspberry.
Finished long on the developing and intensifying palate and tannins with subtle cilantro/violets and a spot-on 13.5% alcohol.
Not a particularly complex Brunello, but a perfect Italian red table wine.
