Arnaldo Caprai, Valdimaggio Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG

£43.00

During a selection of the most refined Sagrantino grapes, Caprai discovered that the grapes that grow around the estate lake show special elegant tannins. This vineyard enjoys a constant moisture from the lake, and this allows a balanced and slow maturation of the tannins.

TASTING NOTES

Black fruit, spice, tar and cured tobacco. Aromas of rum cake and cherry liqueur. This is a generous wine, however despite that evident muscle and brawn the tannins are carefully managed so that they don't taste bitter or astringent. In fact, quite the opposite.

Pairings

Roasts and grilled meats, seasoned cheeses.
