Winery Notes:
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.
