The 2007 Sagrantino 25 Anni from Caprai is another fantastic creation from artistic winemaker Marco Caprai. Like the 2004 vintage, it is made from a hand selection of the property's best Sagrantino grapes and aged for 24 months in small French oak barrels. The wine fills the palate with rich dark red fruits, firm tannins and a mineral earthiness distinctly representative of the Umbrian hills around Montefalco.
Expected maturity: 2013-2025
Food pairing: Pair this very rich & concentrated Sagrantino with grilled beef steaks, lamb chops or venison; rare-roasted leg of lamb; and roasted game hens. This goes very well with dishes accented with black truffles, which are found all around northern Umbria where this wine comes from. It also pairs very well with aged cow- and sheep-milk cheeses.
