  • Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG 25 Anni – 2012 – Wine Spectator – 92 Points

    A rich note of sun-dried black cherry shines through in this finely knit, full-bodied red, layered with dense, satiny tannins and accents of dried fig, spice box, savory olive, smoke and loamy earth that echo on the chewy finish. Best from 2021 through 2030.
