About the Wine
Just 90 miles from one of the most historic capitals in the world: Rome, is located Montefalco. Montefalco is a municipality in the province of Perugia with a great wine culture; where they usually have a festival dedicated to oenology, known as "Settimana Enologica" or oenological week.
Arnaldo Caprai was founded in 1971 when the Caprai family began their dream that now is materialized in elegant wines with a unique character. Arnaldo Capri is recognized for being a leader in the production, research, and recovery of the Sagrantino di Montefalco grape.

Since 2005, the winery has had different ISO certifications. Caprai also has a sense of responsibility in all areas, maintaining environmental, economic, and sustainable practices.
2015 Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Riserva Rosso is aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes:70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 15% Merlot. Aromas of wild cherries, chocolate, violets, vanilla, and exotic spices. On the palate is full-bodied and round, perfectly balanced with vibrant, velvety tannins. This wine pairs lovely with roasted meats, charcuterie, and aged cheeses.
Welcome to the black hole of Umbrian red wine where you get to experience a new level of tannic density, but this is also married to extraordinary ripeness. For all this, a surprisingly clean and elegant finish. Very savory. Drink or hold. ~94 James Suckling
The 2015 Montefalco Rosso Riserva is a generous and radiant wine that offers accessible tones of black fruit, cherry, and savory spice.The blend sees a large element of Sangiovese, and that grape shines bright in this wine, thanks to its elegant tones of wild berry, rose, and pressed violet. ~93+ Wine Advocate
