Arnaldo-Caprai 25 Anni Sagrantino di Montefalco DOCG 2007
Made with the best grapes of 100% Sagrantino, aged 2 years in French Oak Barrique and a minimum of 6 months in bottle. What is immediately apparent is the very deep dark opaque colors, with strong and vibrant vanilla concentrates on the nose, laid over violets, earth and spices. Flavors of ripe fruit woven with spices and vanilla, a bit tight but with great aging potential.
Sampled this today at the Gambero Rosso "Tre Bicchieri" event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC.
