2011 Arnaldo Caprai "Grecante" Grechetto dei Colli Martani

SKU #1125072 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2011 Grechetto Grecante is a pretty wine that impresses for the length, minerality and focus. There is good depth and definition in the flavors, with plenty of yellow stone fruits, flowers and spices all woven together nicely. The creamy, expressive finish is graceful and inviting. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2014. Marco Caprai remains one of the leaders in Montefalco. This year, Caprai has a new wine, a single-vineyard 2007 Sagrantino that emerges from a parcel next to a pond that gives these vines a unique micro-climate.  (2/2013)

K&L Notes

In the Renaissance tradition, there are many wines defined as "Greci, Grecanti, Grechetti". The Grecante of Montefalco was among the celebrated wines of this variety and was historically given as a precious gift by farmers to the princes and cardinals of the community. 100% Grechetto, Arnaldo Caprai keeps this tradition alive in this delightful medium-bodied yet fresh white, characterized by a bright yellow color. It is intensely fruity yet offers delicate floral notes. Soft, well-balanced and pleasantly round on the palate, this makes a delicious apertif or accompaniment to fish and white meats. Try it with pan-fried sole fillets baked in a lemon sauce, Italian style.
