"...Arnaldo-Caprai has fashioned a quite engaging example by blending a bit of Sagrantino (15%) with an equal amount of Merlot and then filling out the wine with Sangiovese (70%). Sangiovese imparts a lip-smacking cherry-like fruitiness, while the Merlot adds fleshiness and the Sagrantino power and structure. Best of all, it’s a delight to drink now with a hearty pasta dish."
Michael Apstein, September 5, 2017
