Tasting Notes

Offers up aromas of well-ripened wild berry fruit, plum, aromatic cedar, tobacco leaf and tanned leather. An expansive, generous palate displays rich fruit and mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins; developing into a long, persistent and fruit-filled finish with notes of graphite.

Producer details

The Tenuta Campogiovanni is located on the southern slope of the Montalcino hill, near San Angelo in Colle. This particular area exhibits a complex of soils that produce some of the finest-quality Brunellos. In addition to 19 hectares of vineyards, there are 18 hectares of olive trees, woods, and fields, for an overall total of 65 hectares. Three separate parcels comprise the vineyards, at an elevation of approximately 300 metres. Of the 19 hectares of vines, 14 are dedicated exclusively to Brunello, and the remainder to a Rosso di Montalcino. In 1938 Pugnitello vines were planted. Most of the vines of Sangiovese are planted at a density of over 7,000 per hectare, trained to spurred cordon. Campogiovanni production is strongly focused on Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. 1990 saw the first production of a Riserva, entitled Il Quercione, made from fruit rigorously selected from the vineyard of the same name. The philosophy remains that of making it only in exceptional growing years. Campogiovanni Brunello fully merits its reputation as one of the great wines of this area. It has won, in fact, some of the most prestigious Italian and international wine awards, so much so that the vintages and 2006 vintages were rated at the 7th and 4th place in the wine spectator’s “Top100’s”.

In the vineyard

Campogiovanni's 12 hectare vineyards are on the south quadrant of the Montalcino hill, where weather conditions and a particular combination of soils allow optimal ripening of the grapes.

In the winery

Harvesting is in late September. The grapes then undergo a 20-day maceration at 28-30 degrees C, and malolactic fermentation in steel. Maturation is for 36 months in large Slavonian oak botti, followed by a further 12 months in bottle.

Food Recommendations

Pairs well with rich meats such as game and boar.
