2000 Arnaldo Caprai "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco

SKU #1007457 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2000 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano is, in theory, the regular bottling, but the wine makes a joke of the term. A deep ruby red, intense, penetrating, and expansive on the nose with potent raspberry/ red currant fruit, richly spiced by the oak, its deep, concentrated, and powerful flavors, almost chewy in their richness but velvety in their texture, give an exceptional continuity and length. Drink: 2006-2018. (DT)  (4/2004)

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.
