Caparzo, a 210-acre estate located in Montalcino, grows eight grape varieties in very limited quantities. (Blanchards’ customers already know their Brunello.) Four of them appear in this blend of Sangiovese (85%), Merlot (5%), Petit Verdot (5%) and Alicante (5%). Maturation for several months in Slavonian oak adds nuance to the wine’s blackberry and mulberry nose. We liked its immediacy on the palate: juicy and tart — traits that render it extremely food friendly. Speaking of which, try any of these traditional first course dishes: faro (a favorite of the ancient Etruscans) and roasted vegetable salad; herb- and cheese-stuffed ravioli, topped with shaved black truffles; pappardelle sulla lepre (Tuscan pasta with hare sauce).
