"There’s good cut to this structured red, with pure notes of raspberry coulis and dried cherry wrapped around burly tannins. Accents of licorice, mocha and tar ring out on the lasting, grippy finish. Decant this well in advance or hold in the cellar." Alison Napjus, January 18, 2017
James Suckling 92
“Attractive dried berry, cedar and sandalwood aromas and flavors follow through to a medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. This is real Sagrantino.” James Suckling, November 21, 2016
Collepiano represents the renaissance of Montefalco as a wine region and Sagrantino as a unique variety grown only in Montefalco. Collepiano is Sagrantino’s area of production at Caprai. The name recalls the gentle slopes that characterize these hills.
