2018 Arnaldo Caprai 'Collepiano' Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of blackberry jam, pepper, clove, and vanilla. Powerful yet elegant; bold tannins hint at the ability for long aging.
Try with roasted meat, preferably one with a bit of fat content, game and beef stew.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano shows that special Caprai touch that evokes softness and texture without going overboard. Striking that balance is incredibly difficult with a grape like Sagrantino that comes bursting out of the gate with power and often astringency. This wine is alive and fruity with a 15.5% alcohol content that is woven into its rich mouthfeel."
James Suckling - "Aromas of violet, red cherry and baked strawberry. Full-bodied with fine tannins. Lots of well-ripened red and black fruit with really nice, spicy complexity. Dark chocolate and espresso come through. Nicely layered."
