Grape: Sagrantino

Montefalco Umbria, Italy

Surprising blend of blackberry jam, rose potpourri, nutmeg, pepper, pine resin, mint, clove and cocoa. Soft, fresh and persuasive with complex tannins and an intense, persistent finish.

The family operation began in 1971 when textiles entrepreneur Arnaldo Caprai purchased 12.5 acres in Montefalco. In 1988, ownership passed on to Arnaldo’s son, Marco, who began the project to cultivate the promotion of the grape that has been growing in the Montefalco region for more than 400 years: Sagrantino. Today, the winery is the leading producer of top quality Sagrantino di Montefalco, a wine produced exclusively from this native variety. In addition to its commitment to quality, Arnaldo Caprai is recognized for its dedication to environmental, economic and social sustainability, as well as being champions for the wines of Umbria. Winery visits available for tasting.

Arnaldo Caprai and his son Marco have turned this obscure grape into one of Italy's hottest wines. Sagrantino is a grape that has twice the natural polyphenols that Sangiovese or Nebbiolo have. This allows them to get a wine with tremendous extract, and with the help of Attilio Paglii one of Italy's hottest winemakers this wine is singing.
