Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 750ml 2007     
Sku: 21933

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
Licorice, sweet spices, toast, and smoke aromas and flavors envelop a core of raspberry in this intense, extroverted red. Complex, focused and structured, with an expansive finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Apr 2012)
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is a huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, licorice, new leather and spices. This is an especially big, voluminous style built on extroverted fruit and sheer richness, but it all works. The weight of the vintage comes through in the wine’s glycerin. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Technical notes
The vines are planted on medium textured, sandy, mineral rich clay soil. Maceration and fermentation in stainless steel lasted 20 days. Aged three years in large Slavonian oak botti and one year 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.
