Arnaldo Caprai Grecante Grechetto Die Colli Martani DOC Italien Umbrien Sagrantino 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The freshness of this wine is second to none. Lime and citrus notes such as young tart pineapple fill the glass along with herbal notes and a slight hazelnut finish. This refreshing wine pairs terrifically with lighter more refreshing foods such as sushi seafood in general poached chicken or whole fish baked with vegetables.

As time went by he believed more and more in the great potential of the local varieties and most of all in Sagrantino. He kept buying land in the surroundings. In 1988 his son Marco Caprai started managing the winery and with his passion and determination gave the necessary impetus to the production of top quality wines. Since 1991 huge investments are driven into the acquisition of new vineyards, scientific research and technological innovation. The winery starts a collaboration with University of Milan and other Instututes of Research in order to improve the results of production. After a few years, new clones of Sagrantino are identified. the experimentation goes on both on the agronomic and enological sector. The 1993 "Riserva" of Sagrantino di Montefalco, created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the company, makes of Marco the acclaimed new star in the Italian wine making panorama. Since 1995 we have been reaping the fruits of a hard work made of investments and research to offer the best of our territory. Our goal today is the same as thirty years ago. Careful and constant work aiming at excellence, research and innovation in the agronomic and enological sector, communication of the culture and identity of our region. Read less
