95 points James Suckling: "Plum and ripe-berry with cedar and fresh-mushroom aromas and flavors. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Hints of chocolate. Shows intensity and focus. Drink or hold. (9/20/20)"

95 points International Wine Report: "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a sensational release from Caparzo in this vintage. Ample and expressive in its sensory profile, it shows nuances of red plums, red flowers, cloves and wild myrtle, with a wonderful Mediterranean herb character. The is medium to full-boded with well-extracted ripe tannins enveloping the palate and luminous essence and character on the finish. Excellent today, but should become even more impressive as it evolves over time. Drink: 2022-2038. (Mar 2020)"

93 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Caparzo is one of two properties in Montalcino owned by the beautiful and charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. The other property is Altesino. This wine, the Caparzo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a very classic interpretation that delivers the goods without any distracting bells or whistles. The wine opens to red and purple fruit aromas with background tones of dried herb, potting soil, cedar wood and light spice. Fruit comes from a site with heavier clay soils, and you get hints of that extra density and richness here. This vintage offers all you need in a model Brunello from a very beautiful and generous vintage. I always admire the wines of Caparzo for their accessible and immediate drinking style. Drink: 2021-2030. (Jan 2020)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "An attractive mix of cherry, plum, earth, tar, spice, savory and balsamic flavors are the highlights of this well-balanced red. Licorice and salty elements emerge on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2039. (6/30/20)"

92+ points Ian D'Agata (Vinous): "[$49/750ml list] An attractive mix of cherry, plum, earth, tar, spice, savory and balsamic flavors are the highlights of this well-balanced red. Licorice and salty elements emerge on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2039. (Apr 2020)"

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of mature woodland berry, underbrush, leather and camphor mingle together with a whiff of blue flower. The bright, polished palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry, cocoa and clove alongside taut fine-grained tannins that leave a firm, somewhat chalky finish. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Alcohol 13.5%. (Jul 2020)"
