2004 Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino di Montefalco "25 Anni"

SKU #1050153

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Sagrantino di Montefalco 25 Anni is remarkable. A dark, brooding beauty, this pure Sagrantino flows from the glass with awesome richness. The wine’s fruit is still primary and vibrant, while the textural sensations on the palate are totally seductive. The firm Sagrantino tannins are there, but the wine has so much fruit they are barely perceptible. First made to celebrate the property’s 25th anniversary, the 25 Anni is a selection of the best fruit and sees 24 months in small French oak barrels. It represents the very finest in contemporary winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024." (02/08) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Full and fruity, with lots of ripe black fruit aromas and flavors. There's nice density and a firm, balanced structure, with a long finish of fruit and mineral. Firm, with lots of oak, but well-balanced. Needs a bit of time. Best after 2009." (08/08)

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.
