2010 Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso

This is a Sangiovese of Montefalco located in Umbria, Italy. We found aromas of toasted cedar and black fruits and tasted vanilla along with some more of that cedar. Ripe blackberries dominate the flavor profile with a little black pepper for spice. The balance is wonderful—a perfect balance of significant body and gripping tannins. The finish is long and enjoyable. The alcohol content is on the higher end (14.5%) and is on the verge of alcohol forward, but its flavor and mouthfeel outweigh the heat. We like this one!
