TASTING NOTES

"Superb Sagrantino. Wonderful chocolate, spice and currant aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Best after 2003. 2,500 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Caprai's top wine, the Sagrantino di Montefalco 25 Anni, was first released in 1993 to commemorate the estate's 25th anniversary. It has since gone on to become one of Italy's most recognized wines. The 25 Anni starts as a vineyard selection of the finest fruit at harvest, followed by a second selection in the cellar. Essentially the 25 Anni represents the finest barrels of Sagrantino the estate has produced in a given year. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak and sees approximately 50-60% new barrels, depending on the vintage. The 1997 Sagrantino di Montefalco 25 Anni is a powerful wine packed with generous fruit. This doesn't appear to be a perfectly clean 25 Anni, as elements of brettiness detract from the wine's overall balance. Ultimately the 1997 is a rather one-dimensional wine, despite its considerable richness." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
