The 2010 Montefalco opens with rich and brilliant ruby red color in the glass. Sensationally intense, with notes of ripe red fruit and delicate hints of vanilla. Full bodied, rich, dry with a long finish.
Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 15% Merlot
"The entire line-up from Arnaldo Caprai has been very successful this year. This blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot delivers a smooth mouthfeel and ripe fruit flavors, with background tones of black licorice and moist pipe tobacco. A spot of crisp acidity appears on the finish."
"Good deep red with ruby highlights. Expressive aromas of raspberry, violet and tea leaf on the perfumed, sangiovese-dominated nose. Dense and sweet, boasting lovely depth and plenty of framing energy to its blueberry and sour red cherry flavors. Building but polished tannins coat the palate on the long, bright finish. Very impressive Montefalco Rosso."
