Campo ai Sassi - 2015

VINTAGE

Denomination

Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Description

Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino displays the same characteristics as Brunello, but in a more youthful, less complicated manner. It is produced from the same grape, Sangiovese, but from vineyards with vines that have very deep roots and yield wines which are aromatic and elegant, and less tannic than the Brunello.

Vintage Report

The Sangiovese budding began in the first week of April and then continued to grow regularly thanks to plentiful water reserves carried over from 2014 and consistent rains in the winter of 2015.
The season progressed with a dry, sunny climate. In the first week of August, two significant rainfalls brought much needed respite to the plants, lowering temperatures and allowing the grapes to photosynthesise in optimal conditions.

Tasting Notes

Campo ai Sassi 2015 is a bright ruby red wine with hinted purple highlights. Its nose is complex and varied with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The wine’s body is beautifully balanced with a long finish that holds a delicately fruity aftertaste.

Serving suggestions

Egg-pasta dishes such as pappardelle in hare sauce, or with boar, or with any red meat, whether steak or stews.
