    • "Grecante" Grechetto Colli Martani DOC 2020

      “Grecante” Grechetto Colli Martani DOC 2020

      Tradition, innovation and typicity are the keywords of the daily efforts at the Arnaldo Caprai winery. And so this white wine from the old, local variety Grechetto is traditional, straightforward and pleasantly drinkable - and anything but banal. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Wonderfully fresh and perfumed, the 2020 Grecante Grechetto lifts from the glass with a display of sweet white flowers, peach skins and raw almonds. It boasts silky, nearly glycerol-like textures, yet it remains lifted and spry throughout, as ripe tangerine and hints of candied lime soothe the senses. A buzz of residual acids and tart green apple lingers long as this tapers off to a flourish of salty minerals and spice. This Grecante really wows in the context of its price point." Vinous

      "Apple-blossom, pear, pomelo, fennel-seed and wild-herb aromas. It's medium-bodied with fresh acidity. Earthy and minerally undertones." James Suckling

      "Produced since the 1989 vintage, Arnaldo Caprai's Grecante is a fresh expression of Grechetto aged for a brief three months in steel and three months in bottle. It's a herbal, lemon-scented white with streaks of lime, gooseberry and tropical fruit. In the mouth it's intense with good acidity and spiky citrus flavours on the attack, tempered by a round, creamy palate. Minerally and herbal, it has mid-palate notes of gooseberry, peppery spice and yellow fruits leading to a long, fresh finish. Ideal with grilled seafood." Decanter

      “San Giovanni della Sala” Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC 2020

      From Castello della Sala, situated not far from Orvieto at an altitude of 500m, come without exception excellent wines, as the inexpensive "entry-level wine" San Giovanni della Sala already proves. Its freshness, richness and balance are remarkable, with notes of yellow flowers, green apple, sage and ginger. Then on the palate, a tremendously silky texture and juicy acidity that lead this juicy white into a beautiful, mineral finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2020 San Giovanni della Sala lifts up pretty and delicate, mixing peach skins with spring flowers and a hint of wet stone. It displays soft and enveloping textures, contrasted by stimulating acidity and saline-mineral tones that add tension throughout. Its fruit is decidedly green in color, mixing lime with Granny Smith apple, and tapering off with a flourish of savory herbs. The San Giovanni della Sala is a spicy and invigorating mix of Grechetto, Procanico, Pinot Bianco and Viognier that keeps you coming back to the glass for more." Vinous

      “Bramito della Sala” Chardonnay Umbria IGT 2020

      Rich, beautifully balanced bouquet with notes of kumquats. On the palate, yellow stone fruit, graphite, minerals and a delicate vanilla note. This fresh white is already elegant, balanced, full-bodied and persistent on the palate, further bottle ageing will round it off fully. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dried apricots and peaches emerge from an air of white smoke and incense as the 2020 Bramìto della Sala opens up in the glass. It's soft and appealing through its stimulating mix of mineral-tinged orchard fruits and complementary nuances of sour citrus. Hints of grapefruit and green botanicals linger throughout the long, spicy. mouthwatering finale." Vinous

      "A refreshing white that meshes a spine of snappy acidity and a streak of salty mineral with a pleasing range of creamy Honeycrisp apple, orange curd, blanched almond and honeysuckle notes. Ends with a lingering, lightly spiced finish." Wine Spectator

    • Rosso Riserva Montefalco DOC 2016

      Rosso Riserva Montefalco DOC 2016

      Deep violet-red colour, on the nose nuances of juniper berries, tar, smoke and liquorice. The Montefalco Rosso Riserva offers plenty of juiciness and brings an attractive combination of elegance and structure, richness in the aromas and polished tannin. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, dark ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Initially shows earthy notes, lots of tobacco, then dark berry fruit, some liquorice. Powerful and present on the palate, opens with dense tannin, rich pressure, dark chocolate on the final." Falstaff

      "Matured for 20 months in oak rather than the 12 months of the non-Riserva, this displays much more wood influence. Strawberry and hedgerow berry aromas are joined by tobacco and wood notes, while the palate is juicy, intense yet fresh, with plump red and black berries and a herbal character on the mid-palate leading to a chocolatey finish. It's all nicely balanced by fresh, zingy acidity and ripe, chewy tannins." Decanter

      "The 2016 Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso Riserva blends 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Merlot to create a powerful but deeply alluring expression, showing crushed blackberry and cherry offset by spiced orange, with sweet and savory herbs, crushed stone and hints of animal musk. On the palate, soft textures envelop the senses, contrasted by tart red fruits, grippy minerality and fine tannins, yet for all of the youthful tension, there's a cooling, subtle sweetness here that provides balance. The finish is long and structured, resonating on sweet herbs, with hints of mocha and tobacco. It's not a shy wine, yet if you enjoy the style, a few years of cellaring will unlock even further depth." Vinous

      "Here's a very floral and "postmodern" Montefalco that shows dried violets, lavender, bay leaf, pine cones and some dried meat. It's still warm and hearty on the full-bodied palate, but bolstered by carefully wrought tannins and direct acidity. Drink from 2021." James Suckling

    • "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016

      “Collepiano” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016

      Aroma of dried black berries with nutty tones, tar, tobacco, candy, dark caramel and light wood notes. Powerful in the mouth, ripe, again partly dried fruit with a little cocoa spicy wood aromas, slightly compote on the palate, dense and persistent, warming alcohol, present, predominantly crumbly tannin, some tar, tobacco and herbs behind. Wonderful, partly salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, dark ruby with a light garnet rim. Lots of dark fruit of blackberry and ripe plum, plus spicy rosemary. Lots of taut tannin on the palate, opens up in many layers, not a palate pleaser either, but doesn't dry, dark chocolate on the final." Falstaff

      "Darkly alluring notes of plum and cherry sauce give way to balsamic spices and hints of mocha as the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano blossoms in the glass. This is a deeply textural yet youthfully dense and poised expression, a wave of ripe black fruits, encased in a web of minerals, coasting along a core of brisk acids. Cooling hints of mint add lift through the massively structured finale, where sweet tobacco, baker's chocolate and currants linger incredibly long. This is a towering yet sleek vintage of Collepiano that will enjoy a long life, though it will require a number of years to come fully into focus." Vinous

      "A fresh and elegant red, showing aromas and flavors of cut hay, strawberry, cherry, iron, eucalyptus and tar. Lithe and intense, with a long, savory aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "With a dark, full-bodied color and ripe aromas of blackberry preserves and dark marmalade, the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano packs a powerful punch at 15.5% alcohol. There are dustings of baking spice or bitter chocolate. Here is a full, big-bodied and brooding Sargrantino." Robert Parker

      "Sparkling dark ruby. Appealing nose with notes of sour cherry and blackberry, very clean. Lots of juicy fruit on the attack, opens with grippy, well-integrated tannin, saline and drinking well." Falstaff

      "Here I’m finding ripe black cherries laced with peppery herbs, as notes of sweet white smoke and purple flowers evolve in the glass. On the palate, silky textures coast across a core of juicy acids, delivering ripe red and blue fruits, and hints of fine tannin slowly collect upon the senses. The finish is long and youthfully structured, resonating on a mix of wild berries and sweet spice. The 2018 Montefalco Rosso from Arnaldo Caprai is cool-toned and really quite pretty, while keeping its fruit front and center. Very nice." Vinous

    • "Valdimaggio" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016

      “Valdimaggio” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016

      Black red and almost impenetrable in the glass. On the nose blackberry, black cherry, some rum pot and tobacco. Generous and ripe on the palate, flanked by taut tannin, which is pleasantly flanked by the fleshy core. Once again, Marco Caprai has succeeded in taming the Sagrantino grape and helping it to the highest dignities - a grape variety that demands a great deal of tact every year even from the "bedrock" from Montecalco. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful, rich ruby. Shows notes of pickled cherries and plums, lots of tobacco. Lots of ripe berry fruit on the nose, opens up with dense tannin." Falstaff

      "The first vintage of Valdimaggio was 2012. Matured in French oak barriques for 24 months, it has brambly hedgerow berry scents followed by an intense mouthful of blackberry, spicy raspberry, damp earth, sweet tobacco and woody notes. Ripe, minty and chocolatey, the grippy tannins take centre-stage on the mid-palate, the finish lengthened by super-fresh acidity and persistent black and red fruits, with just a touch of vanilla bean."

    • "Cervaro della Sala" Umbria IGT 2019

      “Cervaro della Sala” Umbria IGT 2019

      For many years, Castello della Sala has been delivering one of Italy's most famous white wines, the Cervaro. In recent years, it has become fresher and at the same time deeper, without the conservative, broad style that still characterised older late harvest editions of this wine. On the nose, apple compote, cream, notes of oak bark, mango and peach. On the palate, full of tropical fruits with a fine vein of acidity and precise mineral components. A long-lasting, beautiful white and every year rightly one of the most sought-after white wines in the wine world. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A toasty, medium-bodied white, with rich notes of baked nectarine, grilled nut, lemon curd and candied ginger gliding across the palate. Enlivened and balanced by well-honed acidity and a chalky underpinning that lingers on the snappy finish." Wine Spectator

      "A mix of mulled yellow apples, crushed hazelnuts, dusty dried flowers and wet stone creates a rich and inviting display as the 2019 Cervaro della Sala evolves in the glass. It's soft and enveloping, casting opulent waves of textural ripe orchard fruits and subtle savory spices across the palate. Nuances of wild herbs come together with lingering mineral tones under an air of vanilla custard as the Cervaro della Sala tapers off fresh yet with incredible length. This blend, primarily Chardonnay with a dollop of Grechetto, could use another year or two to fully unwind." Vinous

      "The Castello della Sala 2019 Cervaro della Sala relies on a time-honored formula in which the Grechetto grape adds vertical intensity and freshness and Chardonnay gives structure and sophistication. Indeed, Grechetto (with late-harvest clones) never goes above 10% of the blend, and no malolactic fermentation is performed on that variety in order to maintain its tonic and fresh personality. This stunning edition shows orchard fruit, honey and flinty notes. The Chardonnay ferments in neutral barrique from September to February, and fine-grained wood is prioritized to render a reductive winemaking technique to further preserve aromatic intensity. This mid-weight and age-worthy white is redolent of Golden Delicious apple, acacia flower and tropical fruit." Robert Parker

      "A full-bodied white with complex aromas of hawthorn, ripe peach, apricot, mango, lime, flint, toast and some smoke. Layered, concentrated and persistent with bright acidity and a firm, phenolic texture. Hint of vanilla. Very long and refined. Beautiful as always. Very approachable, but better from 2022."

    • "25 Anni" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      “25 Anni” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      In Sagrantino di Montefalco 25 Anni, all the elements of a wine full of character multiply exponentially: space-filling aromas of sweet berries, perfectly integrated wood tones, on the palate a cornucopia of ripe fruit, powerful and sensual. Caprai's top growth, which gives incredible pleasure and must definitely be aerated for 3-4 hours when young. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of baked plum, purple flowers, exotic spices and French oak form the nose on this full-bodied red. The firmly structured palate shows focus and finesse, delivering ripe black cherry, spiced blueberry, licorice and tobacco alongside tightly knit, fine-grained tannins that leave a rather drying finish. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2023-2035." Wine Enthusiast

      "Although this is ripe and decadent, it's also very polished and inviting. Dried plums, tar, menthol, licorice and caramelized oranges and cedar are all in play. The tannins are enormous, but they're covered in dark-chocolate notes and enhanced by vibrant dark fruit. Full-bodied and long on the luxurious finish." James Suckling

      "Red and black autumnal fruits, damp earth and peppery spice aromas lead to a ripe palate with fresh, fine-grained tannins and a minty edge. There's a glorious sweetness running through the bright red and black fruits, accompanied on the mid-palate by earth, tobacco and wood. Young and coiled with a persistent finish, this is ready to spring out of the glass in 10-15 years." Decanter

      "This is a baritone beauty. The 2015 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni is a darkly extracted and thick expression with inky-black fruit aromas that are followed by finer accents of licorice, smoke and tar. The bouquet is deep and complex. There is dark spice here as well, but those spicy tones are mixed with balsam herb, barbecue smoke and teriyaki. The wine is full-bodied and layered, with rich textural fiber. This vintage will award those who wait." Robert Parker

    • "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Collepiano” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2016 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Aroma of dried black berries with nutty tones, tar, tobacco, candy, dark caramel and light wood notes. Powerful in the mouth, ripe, again partly dried fruit with a little cocoa spicy wood aromas, slightly compote on the palate, dense and persistent, warming alcohol, present, predominantly crumbly tannin, some tar, tobacco and herbs behind. Wonderful, partly salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, dark ruby with a light garnet rim. Lots of dark fruit of blackberry and ripe plum, plus spicy rosemary. Lots of taut tannin on the palate, opens up in many layers, not a palate pleaser either, but doesn't dry, dark chocolate on the final." Falstaff

      "Darkly alluring notes of plum and cherry sauce give way to balsamic spices and hints of mocha as the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano blossoms in the glass. This is a deeply textural yet youthfully dense and poised expression, a wave of ripe black fruits, encased in a web of minerals, coasting along a core of brisk acids. Cooling hints of mint add lift through the massively structured finale, where sweet tobacco, baker's chocolate and currants linger incredibly long. This is a towering yet sleek vintage of Collepiano that will enjoy a long life, though it will require a number of years to come fully into focus." Vinous

      "A fresh and elegant red, showing aromas and flavors of cut hay, strawberry, cherry, iron, eucalyptus and tar. Lithe and intense, with a long, savory aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "With a dark, full-bodied color and ripe aromas of blackberry preserves and dark marmalade, the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano packs a powerful punch at 15.5% alcohol. There are dustings of baking spice or bitter chocolate. Here is a full, big-bodied and brooding Sargrantino." Robert Parker

    • "Cervaro della Sala" Umbria IGT 2019 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Cervaro della Sala” Umbria IGT 2019 · MAGNUM in OWC

      For many years, Castello della Sala has been delivering one of Italy's most famous white wines, the Cervaro. In recent years, it has become fresher and at the same time deeper, without the conservative, broad style that still characterised older late harvest editions of this wine. On the nose, apple compote, cream, notes of oak bark, mango and peach. On the palate, full of tropical fruits with a fine vein of acidity and precise mineral components. A long-lasting, beautiful white and every year rightly one of the most sought-after white wines in the wine world. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A toasty, medium-bodied white, with rich notes of baked nectarine, grilled nut, lemon curd and candied ginger gliding across the palate. Enlivened and balanced by well-honed acidity and a chalky underpinning that lingers on the snappy finish." Wine Spectator

      "A mix of mulled yellow apples, crushed hazelnuts, dusty dried flowers and wet stone creates a rich and inviting display as the 2019 Cervaro della Sala evolves in the glass. It's soft and enveloping, casting opulent waves of textural ripe orchard fruits and subtle savory spices across the palate. Nuances of wild herbs come together with lingering mineral tones under an air of vanilla custard as the Cervaro della Sala tapers off fresh yet with incredible length. This blend, primarily Chardonnay with a dollop of Grechetto, could use another year or two to fully unwind." Vinous

      "The Castello della Sala 2019 Cervaro della Sala relies on a time-honored formula in which the Grechetto grape adds vertical intensity and freshness and Chardonnay gives structure and sophistication. Indeed, Grechetto (with late-harvest clones) never goes above 10% of the blend, and no malolactic fermentation is performed on that variety in order to maintain its tonic and fresh personality. This stunning edition shows orchard fruit, honey and flinty notes. The Chardonnay ferments in neutral barrique from September to February, and fine-grained wood is prioritized to render a reductive winemaking technique to further preserve aromatic intensity. This mid-weight and age-worthy white is redolent of Golden Delicious apple, acacia flower and tropical fruit." Robert Parker

      "A full-bodied white with complex aromas of hawthorn, ripe peach, apricot, mango, lime, flint, toast and some smoke. Layered, concentrated and persistent with bright acidity and a firm, phenolic texture. Hint of vanilla. Very long and refined. Beautiful as always. Very approachable, but better from 2022."

    About the regionUmbria 

    Orvieto and Sagrantino - Umbria in white and red.

    Umbria is still a little overshadowed by its more famous neighbour - Tuscany. But the wines of the region are getting more and more attention. You're right. The landscape, climate and soils are very similar to those of Tuscany to the east. The small traditional area has made a name for itself with its white Orvieto and the red Sagrantino di Montefalco.

    Umbria lies north of Rome in the interior and is bordered by Tuscany, Marches and Lazio. Often referred to as "green heart of Italy" is characterized by hills, mountains and lakes. The calcareous soils of the vineyards are clay and sand. As the soil varies, Umbria is home to many different grape varieties. The winds from the Tyrrhenian Sea, from the Tiber river valley, which crosses the entire area, and from Lake Trasimeno are steady and bring humidity.

    Day and night differences in temperature, especially in the higher altitudes, are ideal conditions for producing elegant white wines. Today there are about 13,000 hectares of vineyards in Umbria, from which about 75 million wines are produced every year. About the same amount of white and red. The proportion of DOP wines (DOCG and DOC) has risen steadily in recent years and now stands at 46 percent, almost half of the total.

    Loved by artists and popes.

    The Etruscans already cultivated wine here and Orvieto wines have had an almost legendary reputation since the Middle Ages. Artists demanded rations of this wine for their works as part of their fee. It is said that Pope Gregory XIV loved the wine from Orvieto so much that he ordered his body to be washed with it before the funeral.

    In the past, however, the wine was made sweet and bottled in the typical Pulcinella bottle wrapped in straw. The historical sites are located near the town of Orvieto, which lies on a volcanic table mountain above the river Paglia. The Orvieto-Classico area of around 1,500 hectares (for which DOCG status has been applied for and is expected) is located in the middle of both sides of Paglia and Lake Corbara. Typical for the Orvieto is the piquant, delicate bitter aroma in the finish.

    Orvieto accounts for more than half of white DOC production.

    Orvieto must be pressed at least 60 percent from Procanico, as Trebbiano Toscano is called here, and Grechetto di Orvieto, the remaining 40 percent from other approved varieties such as Drupeggio, Malvasia Bianca Lunga and Verdello. It is available in various degrees of sweetness, secco, abboccato, amabile and dolce - however, it is usually matured dry. In addition, there are the Superiore types, which allow a slightly higher alcohol content, the Vendemmia tardiva (late harvest) and the Superiore Muffa Nobile, a dessert wine made from grapes with noble rot. Wines from the core area carry the addition Classico. Under the name Decugnano dei Barbi a spicy sweet Orvieto and a full-bodied and fruity red wine from Sangiovese and Montepulciano are prepared. The wines from the DOC Colli del Trasimeno on the lake of the same name are also well known: White wines from Malvasia, Grechetto and Verdicchio and red wines from Sangiovese and Gamay.

    Excellent, but often needs getting used to at a young age: Sagrantino di Montefalco.

    The best Umbrian red wines come from the Montefalco area, near the capital Perugia on the eastern bank of the Tiber. Montefalco Rosso DOC is a sweet and often Chianti like Montefalco. It is made from Sangiovese with a little Merlot, Sagrantino or Barbera and is very popular in Roman wine bars.

    The top wine, however, is the Sagrantino di Montefalco - recently also called Montefalco Sagrantino - from the autochthonous Sagrantino grape. A dark, powerful, alcohol- and full-bodied red wine. Very independent and a bit difficult to get used to, as it can reach enormously high tannin values (up to 16x more than Barolo). You should give Sagrantino a lot of time, a few years in the cellar will bring it to true elegance.

    Before modern techniques made it possible to mature it dry, Sagrantino di Montefalco was sweet, often produced like straw wine. Even today there is still a sweet variant at many wineries. This very long-lived red wine has been awarded DOCG status because of its excellent quality.

    The same honour was bestowed on Torgiano Rosso Riserva, which was built just a few kilometres to the north. Sangiovese, with the addition of Montepulciano, Canaiolo and Trebbiano, produces a red wine whose best bottlings are among the best in Italy. However, the simpler Torgiano Rosso DOC also often convinces with its quality. SUPERIORE.DE
