"Intense aromas of dark cherries, oak bark, black truffles and violets. It’s full-bodied and chewy with firm, silky tannins and beautiful length and focus. Dark-chocolate and forest-floor flavors with just a hint of toasted oak and smoke. Really attractive. Try after 2022, but already a beauty."

"With this Riserva of great finesse, the Campogiovanni estate is again at the top. On the nose, aromas of undergrowth, blackberry jam with touches of aromatic herbs, bay leaf above all. Closing on the scents of licorice. Taut mouth, savoury tannins with officinal taste returning at the end."
Produced only in the most exceptional growing years, this Reserva is considered by San Felice to be the finest expression of its Campogiovanni terroir . Carefully selected clusters of Sangiovese grosso from its 2.5-hectare Il Quercione Vineyard, yeld a wine that effortlessly marries together depth, elegance and authenticity of style, plus a remarkable capacity for lenghty ageing. It matures 24 months in 500-litre French oak tonneaux and a further 36 in the bottle. 2015 will be remembered as one of the warmest in recent years; to a mild winter and a spring with regular rainfall, succeeded a hot summer with rare precipitations. Good weather conditions allowed a good quantity and excellent quality production, with perfect phenolic maturation in all vineyards, guaranteeing wines suitable for long aging. Winery
