Arnaldo Caprai Spinning Beauty Montefalco Sagrantino, DOCG – 2010 – The Wine Advocate – 96 Points
Wow. The incredible packaging here (with a gold thread around the bottle and a white wax capsule to close) gives you a sense of the importance of this beautiful Sagrantino. I tasted bottle number 567 of only 1,133 made. The 2010 Montefalco Sagrantino Spinning Beauty is very nicely balanced, showing so much care and focus. Dark fruit, leather, tar and baking spice make up the bouquet, while the tannins are softly integrated—and that’s the key takeaway here. You get lots of big bold power on the close. You really need a serious steak dinner for this wine.
