Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso 2016
|Region||Italy, Umbria, Montefalco|
The bouquet on the 2016 Montefalco Rosso is very floral and bright with aromas of wild rose and lavender that feel etched and pronounced in this vintage. The Sangiovese element was slightly reduced in this blend, and the Sagrantino component does come through loud and clear. I notice it especially in the firmness and tightness of the mouthfeel.
A sinewy, medium-bodied red, offering flavors of wild cherry and black raspberry fruit, with accents of woodsy spice and dried thyme. Moderate finish. Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot. Drink now through 2024. 20,850 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
