Sagrantino "Collepiano" Caprai 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano, first produced in 1979, is Caprai’s more accessible Sagrantino. In top vintages, it has proven to age very nicely. The Collepiano is aged in French oak, roughly 1/3 of which is new. The 2005 Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano is terrific today. Medium to full in body, the wine flows with layers of intensely perfumed red fruits, sweet herbs, flowers and minerals. Fruit, acidity and tannins are all impeccably balanced in this super-refined Sagrantino. This is a jewel of a wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020...92"WA 9/2009
