2007 Arnaldo Caprai "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco

SKU #1155924 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano is superb. A beautifully open, expressive core of fruit dazzles from start to finish, while silky tannins show an elegant, rare side of Sagrantino. Sweet varietal notes wrap around the poised, centered finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. Marco Caprai continues to set the standard for contemporary wines in Montefalco. (AG)  (7/ 2011)

 ** Cellar Selection ** The 2007 vintage was beautiful in Umbria, and this proves to be a stand out wine with enormous power, personality and depth. It delivers gorgeous intensity with pulses of black cherry, chocolate fudge, spice, leather and pipe tobacco. The finish is soft and rich.  (10/ 2012)

92 points James Suckling

 Lots of blueberry and licorice character. Full body and chewy tannins that are round textured. Lots of new wood that needs to be melted into the wine with time. Blockbuster style. Try in 2016.  (12/ 2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

 A ripe, fleshy version, with a rustic undertone of charred herb, maduro tobacco and cured olive. The rich plum and fig sauce fruit character leads to a dark, grippy finish. Drink now through 2018.  (8/ 2013)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
