Arnaldo Caprai is the acknowledged leader in the production of top quality Sagrantino di Montefalco, a wine produced exclusively from grapes of Sagrantino, the variety that has been growing in the region of Montefalco for more than four hundred years. Marco Caprai strongly believed in the great opportunities that could come from such a long tradition and he translated this heritage with a modern and innovative approach. Thanks to research work and long term experimentation we work to produce top quality elegant wines, that show a unique character. The colour, aroma and taste of our Sagrantino will make you feel the strong character of the people who work it, the beauty of the gentle hills where it grows and the richness and complexity of the long traditions of Montefalco. Tradition – Innovation – Territory are the key words that drive us in our everyday efforts. The tradition that belongs to this territory allowed Sagrantino vines to over the centuries.
Arnaldo-Caprai Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2013 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.
Rich in tannins with an explosion of flavor, this red wine is best understood when enjoyed with a wonderful piece of roasted meat, preferably one with a bit of fat content, game, and aged cheeses.
