Food pairing:  Pair this Caprai Sagrantino gem 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.
