"I like the aromas of dried chilis, currants and berries. Hints of hazelnut, too. Full body, firm tannins and a savory finish. A red that needs two or three years to soften. Better in 2018."

Product Description:

"Bolgheri, on the Tuscan coast just south of Livorno, is one of Italy’s most prestigious vineyard areas. Campo al Capriolo (which translates to ‘the Deer Field’) is a classic Bordeaux-style blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% merlot, 20% Syrah aged for 12 month in French oak barriques. "Deep ruby red with an intense bouquet of small black fruits and spices. Full bodied with smooth, silky tannins that lead to an elegant finish." -Importer
