Description

It takes attitude

Located a few kilometers from Perugia, the Caprai company, already renowned in the field of textiles, started its wine business in 1971, when Arnaldo, the founder, bought 45 hectares of land in that of Montefalco, thus starting the production of wine, mostly Sagrantino, after having understood its potential. Years have passed and now the son Marco manages the company, driven by the same love for wine and by the same goal: to enhance the vines in the area, both native and international. The Montefalco Rosso D.O.C. is an excellent red wine, the result of a blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot which, left to age for at least a year in Slavonian oak barrels and in French oak barrels and another 4 months in the bottle, gives intriguing aromas and great taste harmony.

Shiny ruby red, it reveals intriguing hints of black cherry, aromatic herbs, undergrowth and Mediterranean scrub. The taste is elegant and balanced, with impeccable tannins and a long fruity closure.

With pasta (maltagliati) with ragout, with grilled meats or cheeses and cured meats.
