Montefalco Rosso Riserva
Arnaldo Caprai founded his family estate in Montefalco, Umbria in 1971. His son Marco has run the estate since 1988. His efforts have brought justified attention to the high-quality and age-worthy wines made from sagrantino.
Marco Caprai sustainably farms 220 acres of high-altitude vines planted largely to sagrantino, an indigenous varietal that was cultivated for over 400 years and nearly fell into extinction in the 1960s. Marco’s experimentation in the vineyard, the winery, and his work with the University of Milan have been among the driving forces for sagrantino’s resurgence.
The Arnaldo Caprai sagrantino-based blends are powerful and bold expressions noted for dark-fruit flavors, floral aromatics, acidity, and firm tannins that, with patience, showcase the potential of this historical varietal.
