Collepiano is Marco Caprai's premier Sagrantino di Montefalco, an elegant and expressive red wine bursting with dark plum, ripe cherry and blackberry. On the palate there are sweet baking spices, a distinct and pleasing earthiness that comes through, with velvety tannins and perfect acidity. Aged in French barrique for 24 months, the wine has excellent structure and can be laid down for years to come.
Expected maturity: Now through 2025
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.
