90 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: June, 2011
Silky tannins frame a core of expressive red fruit in the 2009 Montefalco Rosso. Flowers and spices add complexity on the supple finish. Caprai's Montefalco Rosso is a more important wine than its modest price suggests. The Rosso is typically at its most complete between ages 7–10. The 2009 can be enjoyed now, but readers who seek tertiary nuance will want to cellar this for a few years. The Rosso is 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2019.
