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, the 35 acres planted in the mid-1960s are reserved for the Brunello and the remaining 14 acres for Rosso. 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.

Tasting notes
Dark ruby, with an amber edge. Intense aromas of ripe plum and fresh mushroom follow through to a full body, with silky-soft tannins and a fresh clean finish. Crisp and decadent.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 92 points (Jun 15 2013)
Draws you in with a beguiling mix of sweet cherry, plum, licorice and leather flavors. Hints of soy and menthol complete the package. Harmonious and long overall, with a vibrant structure. Best from 2015 through 2035. 208 cases made. –BS

Technical notes
Produced exclusively in exceptional vintages, and in limited quantities, Il Quercione is the maximum expression of the terroir of Campogiovanni. The Il Quercione vineyard is planted on medium textured, sandy, mineral rich clay soil. Maceration and fermentation in stainless steel lasted 25 days. The wine aged two years in French oak tonneaux and three years 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.
