Description

homepage_image_campoalmare5Bolgheri’s exceptional climate is moderated by sea breezes from the nearby Tirrhenian Sea, and the vineyards’ clay and
sand soils are ideal for Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The delicate Merlot was picked
during the first half of September, while the robust Cabernets and Petit Verdot were harvested in the second half of the
month. Grapes come from densely planted vineyards and low yields, which produce wines with concentration and
complexity. Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and maceration on the skins takes
20-22 days, followed by malolactic fermentation in steel. The wine is matured 12 months in one-year-old French barriques
and at least 3 months in bottle before release.

TASTING NOTE

The wine shows true Super Tuscan aromas of red fruit and licorice, and rich flavors with a velvet texture on the palate before an extended finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Pairs well with red meat and poultry.

POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • An international-style wine from the famed Bolgheri DOC on the Tuscan coast
  • A Bordeaux-style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
  • 12 months of oak maturation help flavors and texture to become integrated.
