Campo ai Sassi - 2014

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 mild winter with atypical temperatures for the period, favoured an early budding; the warm and sunny days of late summer allowed us to harvest very beautiful and healthy grapes, revealing great potential.

Tasting Notes

Richness of aromas in a wine glass with a brilliant ruby red colour. A range of spices and fresh fruit, accompanied with elegant balsamic aromas for a wine with a live and strong character. Campo ai Sassi 2014 strongly recalls the kinship with the CastelGiocondo Brunello; an outspoken Sangiovese, rich and satisfying, perfect to enjoy with roasts and lasagna, ideal with a plate of egg pasta with meat sauce.

Serving suggestions

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