Variety: Sangiovese, Sagrantino, and Merlot

Grape varieties go in and out of fashion just like anything else; Sagrantino is no different. During the mass production of wine in the 1960s, the variety was added to lackluster wines. It was Arnaldo Caprai who saw its potential having been in the right place at the right time. He began with 45 hectares of vines in Umbria, an area complete with rolling hills and medieval castles, complemented by clay and limestone soils. His son, Marco, heading the second generation, played a major role in the classification of the Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG. This put Umbria in the same conversation as Brunello and Barolo.

This is a blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino, and Merlot symbolizing the nature of the clay and limestone soils of Montefalco. The wine comes from 25 year old vines; the ageing process is often lengthy for Sagrantino wines. This ages in French barriques for 12 months, then completed by a minimum of six months in stainless steel.
