2004 Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino di Montefalco "Collepiano"

SKU #1027756 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2004 Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano is a seamless beauty. Made in a full-bodied style, it offers gorgeous layers of dark cherries, wild herbs, underbrush and leather with a powerful, authoritative personality. Decidedly modern in its interpretation, it is an outstanding wine in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.  (2/2008)

Jancis Robinson

 Very dark, healthy crimson with some shading already. Lowkey nose. Quite dramatic, focussed, ripe, almost fireworks/volcanic fruit. Lots and lots of tannin! It would be an act of faith to buy this now; the finish is just SO tough... (16++/20 points) (JR)  (6/2009)

Vinous

 Inky ruby. Aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, eucalyptus and minerals. Begins supple and sweet, then turns a bit youthfully disjointed-and less fine-grained than other recent vintages. Smoky dark fruit flavors are firmed by solid tannins and pick up a peppery note on the finish. This was aged for 22 months in small oak barrels and has the tannins to prove it. (ID)  (7/2009)

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.
