Hailing from the hill country of central Italy’s Umbria region, the 2005 Arnaldo-Caprai Sagrantino Di Montefalco offers considerable concentration with bright raspberry, cherry and dried herbal overtures sealed in a rich veil of vanilla.
Both balanced and bold, you can expect complex layers, well-structured tannins and plenty of ripe red fruit along with a decent dose of spice to make this full-bodied red wine a favorite ambassador for the region’s Sagrantino grape varietal. Absolutely a must-try wine with all sorts of grilled game, steaks, roasts and meat-centric pasta dishes. Don’t forget to decant first.
