Arnaldo Caprai: the magnificence of His Majesty Sagrantino and the wines of Montefalco
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, February 23rd, 2017
The amazing story of Sagrantino and its triumphant march to the Olympus of Bacchus fully belong to the history of Italian wine. The amazing result of research and passion for a land and its great grape. Marco Caprai, the absolute protagonist of Montefalco and Sagrantino, unfolded to the over one hundred participants to the event the extraordinary journey which led to the revaluation and worldwide success of the powerful Umbrian grape, capable of making wines of remarkable potentials and personality. The great Sagrantino has not been the only protagonist of the evening and the journey to the discovery of Arnaldo Caprai's wines has also poured in the glasses the other interesting grapes cultivated in the vineyards of Montefalco's estates. The event starts with one of the most representative white wines of Arnaldo Caprai winery: Colli Martani Grechetto Grecante 2016. Made with 100% Grechetto - a white berried variety indigenous to Umbria which, just like Sagrantino, has been subject of study and research at Marco Caprai's winery - completely vinified in steel vats, gives a wine of great elegance and aromatic exuberance as well as a pleasing class. The event continues with the last born wine at Caprai winery, Umbria Chardonnay 2015, direct and immediate, clearly expresses the typical aromas of the famous Burgundian grape as well as a pleasing minerality and crispness well blended to a proper roundness. It is then the turn of the first red wine of the evening, Montefalco Rosso 2014 - made with Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot grapes - an interpretation of remarkable agreeableness in which can be perceived the qualities of the three grapes: crispness of Sangiovese, roundness of Merlot and the power of Sagrantino. The evening continues with Montefalco Rosso Riserva 2011, produced with the same grapes used for the previous wine and with a longer aging in wood, expressing high class and elegance in which is also perceived a powerful structure and sensorial finesse. The evening has its highest moment, something easily predictable, when in the glasses is poured Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano 2010, a wine to which both time and vintage give a magnificent balance, with powerful tannins however round and smooth, an explosion of black fruits in which clearly triumphs blackberry, well supported by complex aromas of great personality. The event dedicated to the wines of Arnaldo Caprai ended with Grappa di Montefalco Sagrantino, produced with the pomace of the great Umbrian red grape and without undergoing any aging in wood, in order to give a frank distillate in which can be appreciated the typical aromas of Sagrantino. The tasting of wines has been conducted by Antonello Biancalana who has also conceived - as usual - the dishes paired to the wines of the evening and made by Locanda dei Golosi's kitchen led by Chef Emiliano Buccolini.
