    • "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      “Collepiano” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      Fragrance of dried black berries with nutty tones, some tar, tobacco, candy, dark caramel and a light wooden note. 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, mainly crumbly tannin, some tar, behind it tobacco and herbs. Wonderful, partly salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of dark-skinned berries, toasted oak and underbrush lead the nose. The spicy, structured palate offers dried black cherry, black pepper, tobacco and clove alongside tight, close-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "This is a plush, ripe red with dried plums and notes of tar and ash, as well as a touch of menthol. Full-bodied and ripe, but structured and dialed-in. Decadent on the finish. With a tad less alcohol, this would score even more highly. Drink from 2023." James Suckling

      "The 2015 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano benefits from more stringent fruit selection. "We are limited to only the best fruit for this wine, and we changed the way we pick with multiple harvests," says Marco Caprai. This warm and sunny vintage has shaped a generous and inviting wine that is opulent, bold and rich all at once. This wine offers ample power, yet it's not as bruising as past vintages I remember."

    • "Valdimaggio" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      “Valdimaggio” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      Black red and almost impenetrable in the glass. In the bouquet blackberry, black cherry, some rum pot and tobacco. Generous and ripe on the palate, flanked by firm tannin, which is pleasantly flanked by the fleshy core. Marco Caprai has once again succeeded in taming the Sagrantino grape and helping it to reach its highest dignity - a grape variety that demands a great deal of sensitivity every year, even from the "primitive" Montecalco. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of blueberry brandy, underbrush, dark spice and eucalyptus take shape in the glass. On the tightly knit, brawny palate, assertive, close-grained tannins support dried black cherry, licorice and clove alongside the heat of evident alcohol." Wine Enthusiast

      "The plush elderberries and hints of peperoncino and balsamic work rather well with the dried cedar and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and nicely indented in furrows of chewy tannins revealing dark fruit and detailed acidity." James Suckling

      "Though tightly knit and well-defined by sculpted tannins, this fresh red shows overall elegance, featuring a lovely, fragrant range of plumped cherry and strawberry fruit, with star anise, graphite and cardamom notes, ashy smoke accents and hints of dried mint and marjoram. Creamy finish." Wine Spectator

      "Black fruit, spice, tar and cured tobacco open the bouquet of the 2015 Montefalco Sagrantino Valdimaggio. You also get slightly more mature aromas of rum cake or cherry liqueur from this warm and sunny vintage. This is a complete and generous wine that shows tight tannins at the back. Despite that evident muscle and brawn, the tannins are carefully managed so that they don't taste bitter or astringent. In fact, quite the opposite." Robert Parker

    • "25 Anni" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      “25 Anni” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2015

      In the Sagrantino di Montefalco 25 Anni, all the elements of a drop full of character multiply exponentially: room-filling aromas of sweet berries, perfectly integrated wood tones, on the palate a cornucopia of ripe fruit, powerful and sensual. Caprais is a top plant, which gives incredible pleasure and must be aired 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

      "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

      "The 2010 Montefalco Rosso Riserva is an excellent wine that delivers both power and grace. This achievement should not go underestimated. It is easy for Montefalco Rosso (a blend of Sagrantino and Sangiovese) to show muscle, brawn and enormous structure, because those qualities come in abundance - especially with Sangrantino. It is far more difficult to deliver harmony and this wine does exactly that. Dark fruit nuances are followed by spice, barbecue smoke and black licorice." Robert Parker

      “25 Anni” Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2014 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Marco Caprai is once again setting benchmarks in his region with this vintage. The 2014 edition of his top wine is a darkly saturated and almost viscous wine in an opulent and generous style. The wine smells of dark fruit, tobacco and smoky barbecue. However, the real protagonist is the almost Christmassy, warm spice. In the finish it shows a firm structure and the astringency typical of the Sagrantino, which will give way to an impressive elegance and depth as it ages further in the cellar. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A rich and flavorful red with ripe fruit, as well as meat and wood undertones. Medium to full body. Polished and chewy tannins. Slightly austere. Flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "The 2014 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni is a steady and rich wine that shows dark primary fruit that is followed by a long succession of spice, smoke and tar-like aromas. You get the full Sagrantino package here, with ample muscle power and brawn. However, the wine's overall length and persistence is somewhat clipped in this challenging vintage." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Arnaldo Caprai
    Umbria
    Arnaldo Caprai

    Arnaldo Caprai is considered one of the most important pioneer wineries in Italy. Quality and sustainability are not hollow phrases here, but play a superior role in these Umbrian wines.

    Businessman Arnaldo Caprai followed his intuition at the beginning of the seventies, which was characterized by an unwavering desire for quality and the respectful treatment of nature. In the midst of one of the most beautiful landscapes of central Italy, he finally acquired 45 hectares of vineyards and thus fulfilled the dream of owning his own winery. His fascination was dedicated to the native grape variety Sagrantino, which has been at home in the Montefalco area for over 400 years. Due to the low yield, however, it threatened to disappear in the vineyards of Umbria.

    Caprai made it his mission to give new life to the native Sagrantino and its unique growing area. He is still convinced of its outstanding potential today and passed on his passion to the following generation. In 1988, his son Marco took over the management of the farm and complemented and optimised his father's aspirations with innovative and environmentally conscious business ideas. In the 1990s, major investments followed and a fruitful collaboration with the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and Oenology of the University of Milan began, which continues to this day. Since then, numerous research projects have been carried out, among other things, to study the best possible conditions for growing vines in order to make the most of the potential of the Sagrantino grape.

    Marco's thirst for knowledge and consistent dedication has always resulted in outstanding wines. In 1992, he played a decisive role in the DOCG recognition of the Sagrantino di Montefalco. His passionate commitment made the name Montefalco internationally known. The anniversary riserva "25 Anni" Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG was produced by Marco in honour of the 25th anniversary of the company. The wine has been awarded the highest distinction of the three glasses of Gambero Rosso more than ten times in a row and catapulted the name Arnaldo Caprai to the top of Italian quality wines.

    The constant pursuit of environmental, economic and social sustainability continues to define the DNA of the winery, which has been certified with the EQUALITAS sustainability seal since 2019. As part of the environmental protection project "The New Green Revolution", which was founded in 2008 on Marco's initiative, he even installed Italy's first anti-freeze wind machine in his vineyard in 2020.

    The unquenchable curiosity to promote the winery with agronomic and oenological techniques in an environmentally conscious way always pursues a single goal: to produce wines of impeccable quality that reveal the tradition and culture of the Montefalco area. SUPERIORE.DE
