2006 Sagrantino di Montefalco, Spinning Beauty, Arnaldo Caprai - Val di Maggio


$229.00 per Bottle


2 Bottles




"A new wine from Marco Caprai, the 2006 Montefalco Sagrantino Spinning Beauty is a dark, brooding and powerful beast that is ripe with a deep sense of inner angst and determination. It also shows enormous grace and poise. That said, great work has been achieved to pull back and rein in Sagrantino's astringent tannins. The bouquet offers seemingly infinite layers of dark fruit, prune, spice and bitter chocolate. I had the fortune of drinking this wine with a thick cut of bistecca alla fiorentina, and the painting was perfect. Spinning Beauty needs a few more years of cellar aging."

"This rich and powerful red is textbook Sagrantino. Dense tannins are tightly knit to an expressive range of black cherry coulis, cured tobacco, cocoa powder, loamy earth and licorice snap flavors. Fresh and focused even with 10 years of age on release, this remains graceful for the fine integration and silky texture. Best from 2020 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 75 cases made." Wine Spectator

"A rich and very dense red yet this also shows tension and austerity. Old-school in many ways with so much ripe fruit and wood. But I like it for its strength and depth. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com
