Established in 1970, Caparzo is one of Montalcino's 30 historic wineries, and is among those that most contributed to the creation of the Brunello myth. A center for experimentation and innovation from the outset, in 1977 Caparzo introduced the concept of Cru to Montalcino, vinifying separately the grapes from the La Casa vineyard, one of the most prestigious in the Appellation. Upon purchasing Caparzo in 1998, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini transformed it radically, building a new, completely underground aging cellar that is among the most technologically advanced in the area. She also replanted the vineyards, and through careful acquisitions increased the vineyard area from the initial 46 hectares to 81, of which 28 yield Brunello and 18 Rosso di Montalcino.
One of Caparzo's strong points is that it has vineyards in almost all of Montalcino's best areas; this allows the estate to draw the best from every vintage, even the most difficult. In 1983 the La Casa cru was flanked by La Caduta, a Rosso di Montalcino that draws its name from the La Caduta vineyard.
The estate's philosophy has always been to look to the future, Caparzo was the first Montalcino estate to install solar panels and they now supply much of the electricity the cellars require.
As such they represent a first, fundamental step towards a viticulture that is less invasive and more respectful of the environment and the landscape.
Another important step was the acquisition of a large filter with which to treat all of the rainfall and waters used in the productive cycle, which are made drinkable and stored in a reservoir. In 2005 a program for the differentiated recovery the estate's wastes was introduced.
