Arnaldo Caprai, Montefalco Rosso, Umbria, Italy, 2019
(at Rome, 11 Oct 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027
Umbrian landmark estate Arnaldo Caprai is best known for its Sagrantino, but this entry-level blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot is the perfect companion for regional classics such as strangozzi with black truffle. Nuances of liquorice, damp earth and black pepper anticipate a medium-bodied palate loaded with beguiling flavours of ripe and creamy dark fruits. Velvety tannins frame the medium-long finish along with an energising spicy tang.
