Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino Collepiano
2001
 
The 2001 Sagrantino-based wines of the estate are notably different than those of the powerhouse 2000 vintage, probably the best in the history of the property, even if 1998 offers some stiff competition. The difference is immediately felt in the 2001 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano, the regular bottling (to use an inappropriate phrase), fragrant, expansive, and long on the nose but already suppler, rounder, and readier on the palate than the 2000 version of the wine, even if it will easily last another decade.

TCD OPINION
 
A 4 star vintage in Umbria the 2001 Sagrantino Collepiano is a noteable wine at a very fair price, capable of cellaring, a wise case buy considering the explosion in interest in Umbrian wine.
World famous Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino Collepiano is an internationally acclaimed and celebrated red wine and in some years the finest expression of Sagrantino anywhere in the world. A collectors item and, as a wine from Umbria and not Tuscany, massively undervalued. Potential to age well for 20 years, a beast of wine, heavy and tannic but satisfying and contemplative.

TCD Score: 91/100
91 Points for one of the best ever Collepiano's. 2001 was a super year this could age well for 20 years.

Arnaldo Caprai
 
Arnaldo Caprai wines, together with Paolo Bea, are the toast of Sagrantino. With an impressive range of wines, including a rather impressive 100% Pinot Noir yet it is the Sagrantino that reaches perfection here on this beautiful site. World famous wine, 25 Anni Sagrantino di Montefalco, regularly scoops 95+ points with Parker and the Spectator and the company also carries some excellent white and impressive blends, especially their "Rosso Outsider". These wines are distinctive and cult-esque, Caprai is Umbrian wine.
