Bold & Earthy

The vines of Caprai’s Anima are trained on spurred cordon trellising systems with a vine density of 4.000- 8.000 vines (per ha), yielding 8 tons (per ha). The wine is aged for 8 months in French oak barrique and a further 3 months of aging in bottle before it is released.

The wine has an expressive and appealing blend of Sangiovese (85%) and Canaiolo (15%); red fruit fills the glass with notes of sour cherry, red currant, and raspberries. The fruit is accompanied by notes of cigar box, underbrush, crushed earl grey tea leaves, and nutmeg. The wine is dry, medium-bodied, with long length and bright acidity.

A great accompaniment for mild and aged cheeses, mushroom risotto or braised wild boar.

About the Winery

Arnaldo Caprai

The family operation began in 1971 when textiles entrepreneur Arnaldo Caprai purchased 12.5 acres in Montefalco. In 1988, management passed on to Arnaldo’s son, Marco, who launched a project to cultivate the promotion of the native grape of Montefalco, Sagrantino — increasing the estate’s premium wine production program and building brand recognition around the globe. Marco’s unbridled determination led directly to new acquisitions, scientific research and technological innovation.

Today, the Arnaldo Caprai estate encompasses 370 acres — 220 of which are currently in production — surrounding the villages of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Bevagna, and produces Montefalco DOC and Grechetto dei Colli Martani DOC as well as Montefalco Sagrantino DOCG. 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.
