Tasting Note:

The 2015 Campitello is bursting with lush, smooth, salt-tinged and herb-infused strawberry and raspberry characteristics. Gorgeous fruit and a savoury complexity bind seamlessly together to produce a juicy, melt in the mouth Chianti Classico of energy and class. A blend of 90% Sangiovese 8% Canaiolo and 2% Colorino. The 40 year old single vineyard is planted at 420 metres above sea level, facing south west, on Albarese (hard limestone ) and Galestro (softer limestone ) soils. The wine is aged in large French and Slavonian oak casks for 26 months
