SAGRANTINO DI MONTEFALCO
2000 25 Anni Arnaldo-Caprai
|Sub-district||Sagrantino di Montefalco|
Arnaldo-Caprai's ultimate expression of Sagrantino is this monster of a wine - big, showy and a true blockbuster, but with real class and true expression of 'terroir'. Expensive in the context of Sagrantino, perhaps, but well worth it alongside many of Tuscany's similarly priced big guns. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2000 Montefalco 25 Anni simply multiplies all the elements exponentially with room-filling aromas of sweet berry fruit and perfectly integrated oak and a mouth-coating cascade of ripe fruit, powerful, dense, and sensual tannins in a swelling flow of unrelieved pleasure. I would be very surprised if this wine did not last another two decades. Rating: 97 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Mar 2005)
The Caprai winery and vineyards lie on the hillside below the Umbrian hilltop town of Montefalco. Founded in 1971 by Arnaldo-Caprai Caprai, and now in the hands of his son Marco, the estate has become the leading producer of Sagrantino wines in the region. Sagrantino shows no resemblance to any of Italy's other grape varieties, and is almost exclusive to the region of Montefalco - it is thick-skinned, small bunched and small-berried, but big in every other way: colour, tannins, acids, extracts, and sugars.
