Campaccio “Collezione” Toscana IGT
Campaccio’s cellar reserve is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot from Massa Marittima in Maremma (loamy soil evolving into red earth). The vines face south and the grapes are generally harvested in early fall. Each variety is separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages in French oak (300 liters) for about twenty-four months and in bottle for at least twelve months. A lovely bouquet of red fruit, notes of vanilla and licorice, and hints of toasted coffee beans.
Unbelievable richness and complexity on the silky palate. This reserve is graced with a red lacquer stamp in place of a paper label.
