Ruby red in colour, it expresses attractive notes of wild flowers, red fruit and a touch of nutmeg. Dry and fresh on the palate, it is characterised by a certain smoothness which offsets the tannins. Balanced and very pleasant, it closes on notes which are just slightly bitterish.
Served throughout a meal, it pairs well with starters featuring cured meats and medium-mature cheeses, succulent pasta dishes and roast red and white meats.
Montefalco Rosso DOC 2014 - Arnaldo Caprai: Why we like it
If Sagrantino is the most important wine in the Montefalco area, Rosso is undoubtedly that which accompanies everyday life here. A remarkably fresh and balanced wine, son of a traditional blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot, which is left to age for about a year in large oak barrels. Arnaldo Caprai's Montefalco Rosso DOC 2013 is a wine of rare pleasance, a great companion at the table, now and for many seasons to come.
