Montefalco Rosso Riserva Caprai 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Montefalco Rosso Riserva impresses for its rich, textured cherries, flowers, earthiness and tobacco, all of which come together with remarkable grace. Readers who want to understand the level Caprai reached in 2006 would do well to start with the 2006 Montefalco Rosso Riserva, which has all of the ripeness and richness of the Sagrantino but with tannins that are considerably friendlier at this stage. The intensity and roundness of the fruit flows effortlessly to a long, caressing finish. This is Caprai’s most restrained 2006, and it is a gem. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022...93"WA 6/2010

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.

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
