Sagrantino di Montefalco 1995

I was concerned that this 25-year-old might over the hill but no cause for that, after all. Dried cherries, leather, loam, and overall satisfying through the finish. — 8 months ago

With those Sagrantinos you need at least 10/15 years for the tannins to mellow out.

Apparently you are correct. I gassed 1/3 of the bottle with Private Preserve and it was better still the next day.

Quaranta Anni Vigna del Lago Sagrantino di Montefalco 2007

The Arnaldo Caprai 40 Anni Vigna del Lago Sagrentino di Montefalco is, like its name, a big boy. Plenty of grippy tannins here, as one would expect, but certainly not too ferocious to prevent great enjoyment. Dark fruit, Christmas spice, tar and pepper all combine beautifully. This wine has a long way to go. — 3 years ago

Sagrantino di Montefalcos are so under-appreciated internationally. Really deserve more acclaim. Especially with the fantastic food of Umbria.

@Raun Kupiec based on this wine I’m inclined to agree!!

Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2016

Delectable Wine
9.3

Darkly alluring notes of plum and cherry sauce give way to balsamic spices and hints of mocha as the 2016 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano blossoms in the glass. This is a deeply textural yet youthfully dense and poised expression, a wave of ripe black fruits, encased in a web of minerals, coasting along a core of brisk acids. Cooling hints of mint add lift through the massively structured finale, where sweet tobacco, baker’s chocolate and currants linger incredibly long. This is a towering yet sleek vintage of Collepiano that will enjoy a long life, though it will require a number of years to come fully into focus. (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2021)

Nero Outsider Montefalco Pinot Nero 2010

Thanks to @Delectable Wine for a quick turnaround on ID-ing this relatively obscure cuvée. Caprai does amazing things that go way beyond his flagship Sagrantinos. Here is a 100% Umbrian Pinot Noir, made only in certain vintages. The varietal expression here is unique (a good wine to stump blind tasters) - richer and more powerful than you’d expect, with bluer fruits and higher tannins too...almost like a Bdx. — 4 years ago

Ravera Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Beautifully organic nose features leather and earth. Raspberry, strawberry, black licorice and baking spice flavors are quite savory. Velvety tannins on the very bold finish. Nicely complex. — 5 months ago
