Campogiovanni, Brunello di Montalcino 2012 - Nov 2017 Decanter review

___

San Felice's distinguished Campogiovanni estate consistently produces some of the richest, most forward and impressive wines of the zone; widely recognised as being authoratitive and opulent. The Tenuta Campogiovanni is a sister estate to Agricola San Felice, and is located on the southern slope of the Montalcino hill, near San Angelo in Colle where weather conditions and a particular combination of soils allow optimal ripening of the grapes..

This 65ha estate comprises 19ha of vineyard across three separate parcels - amongst olive trees, woods and fields. Production here (and 14ha of vineyard) is strongly focused on Brunello, with the remainder largely used for Rosso di Montalcino. Campogiovanni Brunello is amongst the very best in the region. 1990 saw the first production of a Riserva, entitled Il Quercione, made from fruit rigorously selected from the vineyard of the same name and made only in exceptional years.

For this wine, and for much more detail, see the blue link below for the fiche technique/technical note from Campogiovanni themselves.

Campogiovanni, Brunello di Montalcino 2016 - fiche technique

100% Sangiovese.

Offers up aromas of wild berry fruit, plum, aromatic cedar, tobacco leaf and tanned leather. An expansive, complex palate with meaty, savoury characters and fine-grained tannins; developing into a long, persistent and fruit-filled finish with notes of graphite.

Pairs well with rich meats such as game and boar.
