The company
Arnaldo Caprai is recognised as the leading producer of Sagrantino di Montefalco, the great red wine made from Sagrantino grapes, a unique variety that has only grown in the Montefalco area for more than four hundred years.
Technical specifications

Our goal: constant and meticulous work in favour of quality, research and experimentation into new agronomic and oenological techniques, and the dissemination of local culture and tradition.
Productive process

Our modern and functional wine cellar was completely renovated in 1997 and today has: a vinification and storage department where we have stainless steel tanks for fermenting and storing wines, equipped with devices for regulating temperature and automating the pumping over of red wines during fermentation. An elevation cellar with Slavonian barrels and barriques, of which 90 % of the selected woods are French and come mainly from the forests of Allier, Nievre and Vosges. The passage in wood allows the transfer to the wine of all those substances that, along with the constant micro-airing typical of the storage environment, determine the enrichment of the bouquet and the achievement of ideal aromatic and organoleptic complexity. A bottle-ageing department for further maturation of the wine completes its evolutionary state, enriching it with greater olfactory and taste finesse. In a room specially designed for this last decisive step, we leave the bottles for a period of 6 to 8 months.
