Campogiavanni Brunello di Montalcino 2010

Campogiavanni Brunello di Montalcino 2010

Sku: 037308

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Feb 2015)
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni opens to oaky tones and overtly ripe fruit. The wine is slightly overdone in places, especially the palate where it feels sticky and chewy. Wood-driven tones of cinnamon, clove and vanilla add thick layers at the back. Sweet oak and syrupy cherry fruit characterize the opulent close. Ultimately, this wine is too much of a good thing.
 Wine Spectator 95 points (Mar 25 2015)
Black cherry, black currant, cedar and tobacco flavors highlight this firm, dense red. Has the fruit, structure and harmony to develop, along with a lingering wild herb and mineral aftertaste. Juicy finish. Best from 2018 through 2033.-B.S.

Technical notes
The vineyards of Campogiovanni are situated on the southern side of Montalcino, where the unique combination of microclimate and soil composition create the ideal ripening conditions for sangiovese. Campogiovanni is a traditional Brunello, conditioned for an average of three years in Slavonian oak barrels and 500-litre tonneaux, and then for 12 months in the bottle.
