Reviews Of Individual Wines:


2012 Zinfandel:

"It was lovely, full of classic Zinfandel brambly, berry-ish flavors, but restrained and polished rather than exuberan and in-your-face."

Tom Maresca, Tom's Wine Line


1996 Sangiovese

"Caparone's 1996 Sangiovese was even more impressive than the 2014.  With the additional age, the tannin and acidity integrated inot the wine, making it perfect to drink now at age 22."

Ed McCarthy- Wine Review Online


2014 Nebbiolo

"Caparone has managed to do what no one outside of Italy was done.  They hame made not one --but three-- Cal-Ital wines tha have the aromas and flavors of their Italian forebears.
