Marco Caprai strikes again with yet another beautiful vintage of his top-shelf red. The 2013 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni is a darkly saturated and thickly extracted wine with a full and generous style. The wine is redolent of dark fruit tobacco and smoky barbecue. However the real protagonist is spice: baking and Christmas spice to be exact. The wine is firmly structured with some tannic astringency that will soften with extra cellar aging.
