Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano 2013
|Region||Italy, Umbria, Montefalco Sagrantino|
The 2013 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano 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.
Aromas of prune, raisin and baking spice lead the nose. The youthfully austere, primary palate shows raisin and ground pepper alongside bracing tannins that clench the finish. Give the tannins another couple of years then drink to capture the remaining fruit.
