Arnaldo caprai montefalco riserva 2005

Arnaldo Caprai is a great Umbrian winery, producing both wines for immediate consumption as well as long living, upscale wines like this one. We will get to the wine in a bit, but more about the winery first: it is a beautiful building, with a glass floor that let's you look into the cellar that is directly underneath the tasting room. Very modern winery which respects it's history.
The wine: Deep color, full bodied, wild berries: raspberry, casis, spices: pepper, boke granie, slight leather, violet rich long satisfying finish smooth and very well integrated. Excellent wine: 92
