Tasting Notes

'Tasting the delicious 2015 Cupano Brunello di Montalcino next to the bigger and darker Riserva is a real treat. Here I find an exotically spiced and perfumed blend of strawberry and cherry with hints of plum and white smoke. There are depths of silky textures and ripe fruits to be found along with hints of cinnamon, clove and sweet florals which amass toward the close. Its tannins are round, creating something of a creamy feel even through the finish, where sweet herbs and hints of citrus linger. This has the structure for short-term cellaring, yet it is already so easy to like.' Ian D'Agata, Vinous

More Info

If you were a grape, this would be where you went on your holidays.  At Cupano, perched on a beautiful ridge near Camigliano that slopes down to the Ombrone river, they harvest everything by hand and use a horse and plough to tend the soil. One of the things that demonstrates the great attention to detail shown by Cupano is that owner & winemaker, Lionel Cousin, walks through his vineyard every day removing individual berries with a pair of nail scissors. It is winemaking on a miniaturist scale. Compare that to the infamous story about one of Australia's huge wineries, where the double-width mechanical harvesters went through the vineyards with such indiscriminate disregard that when they went to press the grapes, one of the workers found a bicycle in the crusher.
