The Caprili estate is located to the South-West of Montalcino at an altitude of 335 metres above sea level and was bought in 1965 by the Caprili family. Today, the Caprili family controls all the stages of the winemaking process, from wine production to commercialization. In 1965, the first grapevines were planted by Alfo Bartolommei and in 1978, Caprili made the estate’s first wine, the Rosso di Montalcino. Afterwards, Caprilli began growing crops to make his first Brunello di Montalcino wines. Caprili wines are only produced from grapes provided with excellent and originating from the Caprili vineyard itself.
The Caprili estate plays an important role in the development and promotion of the Brunello di Montalcino, not only by producing wines of superb quality but also by collaborating with the Florence University towards the development and expansion of the appellation. The Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1997 of Caprili was ranked among the top 100 in the Wine Spectator, obtaining a score of 95/100.
