Tasting notes

The 2019 growing season varied greatly. While winter was marked by below-average temperatures and a few rather abnormally distributed showers, spring saw the water shortages recover. In May, with the lowering temperatures and abundant rainfall, it was determined that the vines were growing particularly slowly. As such, bud break, which began in line with the vines' natural life cycle, slowed slightly. June turned out to be a very hot month, and was followed by a rainy summer. Lastly, the grapes ripened a fortnight later than anticipated and were harvested at a more traditional time.

Wine Variety: Sangiovese

Maturation: in oak barrels

Alcohol content: 14%

Vinification and ageing: Once harvested, the Sangiovese grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. During this stage, breaking up the cap was vital to ensure perfect polyphenolic extraction. The wine was then aged further in the cellar, with a period in wood barrels. It was then aged further in the bottle to complete the process and produce a quality product for consumers to enjoy.

Organoleptic Notes: Campo ai sassi 2019 has an intense, radiant ruby-red colour with subtle violet hues. The nose presents an array of floral and fruity notes. Hints of violet flower make way for notes of red and black berry fruits before elegant spiced scents of white pepper and star anise come to the fore. An elegant balsamic quality rounds off the bouquet. When tasted, the tannic texture is striking but not excessive. The finish is persistent with a clean fruity and floral after-taste.

Available formats: 75 cl
