Winery

In 1971 Arnaldo Caprai, a successful textile businessman, bought the Val di Maggio estate to fulfill his dream of producing his own wine. He started off with only five hectares. As time went by he believed more and more in the great potential of the local varieties and most of all in Sagrantino. In 1988 his son Marco Caprai started managing the winery and with his passion and determination gave the necessary impetus to the production of top quality wines. Since 1991 huge investments are driven into the acquisition of new vineyards, scientific research and technological innovation.

Wine pairing notes

Rosso di Montefalco is a tannic wine. The blend of Sangiovese with Sagrantino and Merlot makes it a strong and long lasting wine that perfectly enhance the sapidity of this dish. It helps to smooth out the lushness of the beef as well. The good intensity of both aroma and flavour of the wine matches well and counterbalances the different spices.
