Tenuta di Castelgiocondo Campo Ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018
What a treat! Hailing from the reputable Fresco Baldi Family Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino offers all the typical characteristics expected of a young Sangiovese cultivated in this area. Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino displays the same characteristics as Brunello, but in a more youthful, less complicated manner. Less tannic than Brunello but produced from the same grape, Sangiovese, from vineyards with vines that have very deep roots and yield wines which are aromatic and elegant.
Campo ai Sassi is a brilliant ruby-red colour. On the nose, the wine presents violet and small, red fruit notes enriched by a delicate white pepper nuance. In the mouth, elegant tannins balanced by a crisp acidic note ensure drinkability. 18 day maceration, fermented part in 80 hl and in 100 hl Slavonian oak casks, part in french oak barrels. The finish is long and persistent with a distinctive aftertaste that is both fruity and floral.
