About
The Capanna farm, owned by the Cencioni family since 1957, is situated in the Montosoli area, to the north of Montalcino. It was founded by Giuseppe Cencioni and, helped by his sons Benito and Franco, it was one of the first farms of the modern period of Brunello. They started bottling their own wines in the 1960's and right after Brunello di Montalcino was granted DOC status in 1966.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took a tour of this beautiful winery. Next we did a tasting of the riserva wines. We are big fans of Brunello di Montalcino, so this was heaven for us. I would love to come back and stay here in the future. The grounds are in a beautiful spot with a great view of Montalcino. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable! Thanks so much for a memorable time!

We had a very fun and educational time at Capanna. Davide was a great host– patient with giving directions to the winery, friendly, very knowledgable about winemaking, and glad to answer all our many questions. The setting (just outside Montalcino) is beautiful; the wines and grappas are great. It was interesting to see how different they can be year-to-year. Of course we had to buy some wine and grappa to bring home too! Booking in advance is recommended. All in all we really enjoyed our time. Thank you Davide!

Our visit to CapAnna was nothing but amazing. We booked the visit beforehand and Daniele was very helpful and communicative and made sure that we knew the directions etc. well before the visit. Once we arrived Daniele came out and greeted us and gave us the grand tour followed by a tasting. Daniele took great care of us, was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth. The winery itself is a beautiful rustic stone building which has been renovated with great attention to details and sits in a great location not far from Montalcino. In fact CapAnna's vineyards are located on the prestigious Montosoli hill which is famous for producing some of the very best grapes in the whole area. Needless to say the wines were amazing and we could not stop ourselves from buying a few cases. All in all, CapAnna is without doubt our favorite producer in the area and we are already planning our next visit!

We visited this winery as part of our honeymoon tour and we were not disappointed. Daniele gave us a tour where we started by seeing the vineyard and how the slope and sun determines where the grapes are planted. We then learned about the buildings on the property before entering the cellar. We ended our tour with wine sampling. Our family prefers white wine and even though it wasn't part of our tasting, we were able to sample the wines and ended up shipping some home. Our family loves the wine and wishes they could have joined us.

My wife and I toured five wineries in Montalcino in September 2016. We chose them based on recommendations from Gordon’s Fine Wine experts in Waltham, Massachusetts and from Kerin O’Keefe’s book, Brunello di Montalcino: Understanding and Appreciating One of Italy’s Greatest Wines.

The second vineyard we visited was Capanna where Daniele Marconi cheerfully greeted us and led us on a private tour and tasting. Daniele’s enthusiasm for the wine business in general and Capanna in particular was palpable, and he provided a very insightful tour of the winery, sharing Capanna’s vineyard, fermentation, and aging practices and explaining how each phase contributes to the quality and characteristics of their wines. He covered the rich history of the vineyard and the role of Capanna’s owner, Patrizio Cencioni, as both a wine maker and the president of the Consortium of the Brunello di Montalcino Wine. Long days for him!

The tasting following the tour included some of the great Brunello reserva from the 2010 vintage, which we were fortunate to buy from their dwindling stock. Daniele handled all of the shipping details. Capanna also creates a classic Moscadello di Montalcino Vendemmia Tardiva that is delicious. We felt privileged to receive such a warm welcome, enthusiastic tour and the opportunity to taste some truly great wines.

As a bonus, the Capanna property itself is a page right out of a Tuscany tour book. The winery takes its name from the capanna (Italian for “cabin” or “cottage”) that is adjacent to the wine cellar and adds to the winery’s rural charm and beauty. A family of farm cats we were invited to meet completed the bucolic picture - Italian hospitality in the countryside at its best!

We had a great time. Daniele was very welcoming and knowledgeable and looked after us superbly. It was great to meet the owner as well and have a short tour of the vineyard and the winery before our tasting. We walked out of there very happy and I would definitely visit again... not to mention drink their delicious Brunellos!

Private tour that offered wine experience followed by a tasting. Our favorites were the big bold Brunello and rose. They do ship to the US. It’s a must if you are in the region

If you are visiting Montalcino you cannot miss this place. The winery is in a wonderful spot and the wines are sublime.
They also have a beautiful restaurant with incredible view and food.

We took a tour and wine tasting and it was a fantastic experience. Our TOUR GUIDE was very knowledgeable about the different processes for Rosso, Brunello and Riserva. We were very impressed--so much so that we are having 12-bottles shipped back to the US! And, what a great treat when we were able to meet with the owner/founder of this winery! I will definitely visit here again!
