Reviews

  • Montefalco Rosso – 2013 – 5 stars – Restaurant Wine

    “… full bodied, moderately intense, and very finely flavored (blueberry, plum, pomegranate, white pepper, rose petal, toast), with excellent balance and a persistent finish. Can be aged further. One of Caprai’s best ever versions of this wine.”

  • Montefalco Rosso – 2013 – 90 points – RobertParker.com

    “… rich concentration and a dark garnet color. The aromas are well defined and respectful to what an Umbrian red wine aspires to be. You get dark cherry and a touch of dried fruit in the form of cassis. Delicate notes of spice and tobacco...”

  • Montefalco Rosso – 2013 – 91 points – winereviewonline.com

    “… Black cherry, plum, sage, vanilla and spice aromas and flavors dance together over moderate tannins and soft oak toast, with structure to linger long with all the elements in play … this is a real food friendly wine at a great price.”
