About

96

"In a traditional style, showing beefy tannins and savory earth notes, with a core of leather and cherry flavors. Shows some sweetness midpalate and picks up energy on the long finish. Hangs together, ending in an uplifting, resonant manner. Best from 2021 through 2036. 5,833 cases made. -BS"

About the Producer
"In 1984, under the supervision of the late Managing Director Enzo Morganti, San Felice purchased the 49 acre Campogiovanni estate located in Montalcino, Italy. Entirely planted to Sangiovese Grosso, 34 acres of vines, the oldest planted in the mid-1960’s are reserved for Brunello and the remaining 14 acres for Rosso di Montalcino. The south-southwest facing vineyards are situated at 820-984 feet and benefit from the mild breezes off the Mediterranean. Campogiovanni's world-class terroir of sandy, mineral-rich clay soil encourages slow and steady ripening, which produces unusually complete and balanced Sangiovese Grosso grapes. Winemaker Leonardo Bellaccini replanted other parcels in 1988 and 1997." Importer
