2009 Arnaldo Caprai "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco

SKU #1254367 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano offers a modern interpretation of a traditional wine once made by monks. The extra oak intensity leads to soft tones of chocolate, dark cherry and spice. This wine ages in barrique for 22 months. Each producer finds his or her own way to tame the brutal tannins of Sagrantino. One way Marco does this is with oak. (ML)  (8/2013)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Polished and spicy, this structured wine features aromas of leather, truffle, blackberry and savory herb. The juicy palate delivers layers of fleshy black plum, black cherry, freshly ground peppercorn, tobacco and thyme alongside big, velvety tannins. (KO)  (2/2015)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Harmonious and tightly knit, with a subtle density to the frame of firm, fine-grained tannins and light acidity, showing hints of medicinal herbs, sun-dried black cherry, bresaola, ground anise and graphite. (AN)  (11/2014)

Wine & Spirits

 Dark and autumnal, with rigid tannins weaving through intense licorice and bitter chocolate flavors, this will begin to unfurl with a few more years in bottle.  (4/2015)

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.
