Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino Montefalco 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano is a darkly endowed and extracted wine that shows similar pedigree to Caprai's top wines. Except this wine is a tad more affordable. It is also much more versatile, and I could imagine a wide range of meat parings, from roasts to stews. Aromas of dried blackberry, spice, tar and smoky flint appear on the nose. The mouthfeel is powerful and muscular. Some 80,000 bottles were produced.

In 1971 Arnaldo Caprai, a successful textile businessman, bought the Val di Maggio estate to fulfil his dream of producing his own wine. He started off with only five hectares. 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

[Cru. Venison] Huge. Dark violet color. Fullbodied. Even at almost 10yo, this will improve with time; 3-5 more years. Meaty, minimal fruit at first; later some dark fruit developed; nice long finish. A great wine.
