Passito di Sagrantino from the famous Umbrian winery Caprai represents one of the best interpretations of a historical wine from the Montefalco area. According to the oldest traditions, in fact, Sagrantino was almost always vinified to produce sweet wines. The presence of residual sugar helped soften the tannic roughness typical of the grape variety. The vinification of withered grapes allows for a rich concentration of aromas and a bouquet capable of seducing with persuasive notes of ripe red fruit and harmonious hints of oriental spices. It is a perfect wine to pair with chocolate or berry desserts.

Passito di Sagrantino wine is produced by one of the most important wineries in central Italy. Caprai has been instrumental in the rebirth of viticulture in Montefalco, boldly focusing on the qualities of Sagrantino. Today his wines are an indispensable reference point for the entire area and represent excellence on a national level. In addition to producing very interesting labels of dry vinified Sagrantino, Caprai has kept alive the tradition of producing a dessert wine from dried grapes. This is a unique wine of its kind. A passito from red grapes of extraordinary depth and aromatic richness, which fits into the centuries-old groove of the territory's history, reconfirming the excellence of a timeless wine that is still able to excite.

Caprai's Sagrantino Passito is one of the most interesting expressions ever of this precious Montefalco speciality. At the end of the harvest, the best bunches of Sagrantino grapes are allowed to dry so that the berries slowly dehydrate, concentrating the sugars and aromas. At the end of the classic red vinification, with a long, slow fermentation on the skins, the wine matures for 18 months in barriques and completes its ageing with 12 months in bottles. In the glass, it is dark ruby red in colour with garnet highlights. The bouquet is complex and rich, with aromas of small dark berry fruits, black cherry, plum, hints of dried fruit, soft oriental spices and vanilla. The palate is wide and enveloping, with dense and persuasive aromas, anticipating a harmonious and persistent finish.
