Back in 1971, textiles entrepreneur Arnaldo Caprai decided to spring on a winery that he thought could be special and purchased 12.5 acres in Montefalco. In 1988, Arnaldo passed the business down to his son Marco, who began the project to cultivate the promotion of the grape that has been growing in the Montefalco region for more than 400 years: Sagrantino.
Today, the winery has become the leading producer of top quality Sagrantino di Montefalco, a wine produced exclusively from this native variety. In addition to its commitment to quality, Arnaldo Caprai is recognized for its dedication to environmental, economic and social sustainability, as well as being champions for the wines of Umbria.
Montefalco Rosso is the perfect wine for the area of Montefalco because it merges together the regions three best indigenous grapes. It’s a seamless blend produced from Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Merlot, which epitomizes the character and identity championed by the Caprai family.

Aromas of blackberry, plum, dark cherry, bay leaf and chocolate. Full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins. Vibrant, with a chalky texture and a chewy finish with spicy chocolate undertones. Firm and tannic.
