Sku: 1841446

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

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-1960s 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.

Tasting notes
Ruby red in color with aromas of dark cherry and blackberry. Notes of pungent cedar wood, well structured and smooth. Aromas and flavors of sweet red plum, strawberry, sassafras and tobacco. Youthful with edgy tannins.

Technical notes
The vines are planted on medium textured, sandy, mineral rich clay soil. Maceration and fermentation in stainless steel lasted 12 days. The wine aged 12 months in large Slavonian oak botti, followed by an additional two months in bottle.

Other text
In 1984, San Felice purchased Campogiovanni, located in Montalcino. The estate's 49 acres of vineyards are planted entirely to Sangiovese, with 35 dedicated to Brunello and 14 to Rosso. Some vines were already present when the property was purchased, but many more were planted during the 1980s. The vineyards are located at an elevation of 820-984 feet with a south-southwest aspect. This position allows it to benefit from the mild breezes that come in from the Mediterranean, which keeps the humidity from accumulating. The vines are planted on medium textured, largely silty sand with some clay, on sandstone and calcareous marl. The terroir provides a steady, yet slow-paced ripening, which is favorable to producing vines of significant qualitative integrity. The wines of Campogiovanni are produced with the intent of allowing the wines to express all their potential.
