Arnaldo Caprai 25Th Anniversary Sagrantino Magnum

Calling all wine lovers. All friends and relatives of wine lovers. Anybody who might possibly one day wish to become a wine lover. Honestly, everyone should want this. Sagrantino is one of the most stunning and age-worthy Italian reds that nobody knows about. Seriously, nobody. But deep in the Umbrian hills surrounding Montefalco, in the green heart of Italy, a few producers labor on, making this exquisite wine, hoping people will understand it, age it, and enjoy it. You mustn’t forget the bit about aging. Sagrantino has such aggressive tannins that drinking it young is not only a travesty, it could very well take the enamel off your teeth. But aged Sagrantino….ahhh! Arnaldo Caprai was one of the pioneers of modern Sagrantino production, and indisputably one of the quality leaders of the appellation. In 1993, Caprai bottled a special cuvee of his Sagrantino, the 25 Anni, to celebrate the estate’s 25th anniversary. Since then, this wine is made in the better years, a testament to Sagrantino’s ‘power, character and elegance’. The 2012 has aromas of black and red fruits, rose petals, spices ranging from nutmeg to black pepper, balsamic vinegar, mint, leather and toasty oak. Elegant and soft, round and velvety. Fresh but with complex tannins. In short, a thing of abject beauty. AND it’s in a magnum, too, for double the pleasure.
