ARNALDO CAPRAI 25 ANNI SAGRANTINO DI MONTEFALCO

The family operation began in 1971 when textiles entrepreneur Arnaldo Caprai purchased 12.5 acres in Montefalco. In 1988, ownership passed on to Arnaldo's 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 is 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.

25 Anni is the result of in-depth research and careful clonal selection of Sagrantino's best grapes. This jubilee wine was produced for the first time in 1993 to celebrate the winery's 25th anniversary. Since then, 25 Anni has kept its name as well as its unique character, power and elegance.
