As we approach fall, wine-lovers inevitably turn to wines that pair well with the flavors of the season. Arnaldo Caprai produces wonderful white and red wines that will make you forget all about the end of the summer and look forward to the cool weather.
Arnaldo Caprai, one of the most beloved winemakers in the Umbria region, produces Grecante Grechetto 2009 DOC about ($19.99) SRP, a delicious and complex wine that makes a fantastic pairing with fish, cheese and white meat-based dishes. The wine is made from 100% Grechetto grapes, which offers a beautiful and well balanced mix of floral and intense fruit aromas, followed by fresh and crisp flavors of citrus and tart pineapple. The combination of fruit and floral notes will remind you of the best days of summer.
Arnaldo Caprai also produces Montefalco Rosso DOC 2005 about ($23.00), SRP a stunning, full-bodied red wine that’s delicious paired with stews, steaks, and hearty autumn dishes. This wine is best enjoyed when the weather begins to cool and enjoyed with all of the season’s goodies.. The complexity of the Montefalco Rosso is obtained by the blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, and 15% Merlot. This combination of varietals offers notes of ripe red fruits with delicate hints of vanilla, and a long elegant finish
We loved them both and found the value astounding.
