San Felice Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 1.5LT with wooden box
Campogiovanni’s vineyards are situated on the south quadrant of the Montalcino hill, where weather conditions and a particular combination of soils favor optimal ripening of the Sangiovese Grosso grape.
Campogiovanni Brunello is absolutely classic in style, averaging three years in Slavonian oak casks and 500-liter tonneaux, then another twelve months in the bottle. It is recognized for its finesse and longevity. Five times award-winning wine in the TOP 100 Wine Spectator.
Vintage Profile Winter was quite mild and rainy; elevated temperatures at the beginning of April have caused an early flowering of at least 10 days; after a regular May, the summer months were very hot, with temperatures high above seasonal average, with periodic rains that helped to maintain a good vegetative balance avoiding water distress.
The ripening of the grapes was very good as well as the average quality of the wines produced.
Tasting Notes and Pairings Deep ruby red. Offers up aromas of well-ripened wild berries, blackberry preserves, tobacco leaf, and tanned leather.
An expansive, generous palate displays a rich mouthfeel, developing into a lengthy finale marked by fruit liqueur. Pairs perfectly with a wide range of meats, particularly game and boar, and with aged pecorino cheese.
Intense ruby red colour. Aroma: ripe forest fruits, blackberry conserve and notes of tobacco and leather. Broad, soft and persistent on the palate, with a spirit-steeped fruit finish.
