In a Nutshell
The opulence of Brunello, but in a more supple, approachable style
The ripe, inviting nose is warm and open, with ripe cherry, blackberry fruit combined with cedarwood and spice notes. The palate has rounded plum and red fruits balanced by fresh acidity. Spice and savoury characters and fine tannins lead to an elegant finish.
These 6 hectares of Sangiovese vines were planted in the 1990s on the Campogiovanni estate. The vineyard is at a 250-300m altitude, south to southeast-facing. After a 12-day maceration, and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was matured for 12 months in Slavonian oak botti, followed by a further 2 months in bottle.
