Arnaldo-Caprai 2005 Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano DOCG
Umbria, Italy

Some historians believe that Sagrantino vines were first brought to Umbria by followers of St Francis of Assisi in the thirteenth century. Like those barefoot friars, this Sagrantino di Montefalco displays a certain roughness and rusticity that aging hasn't completely softened. Its aromas are of ripe red fruit, vanilla and spice. The wine's full body, sturdy tannins and somewhat bitter finish make it an excellent companion for osso buco and bone-in ribeye.

Rating: 14.5/20
Price: $60
