Campaccio Toscana IGT
Campaccio was created to express the Terrabianca philosophy to its fullest. It is the most representative of the estate, and exemplifies its originality of flavors and aromas.
It is made from a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown in two vineyards in Radda in Chianti (Calcareous-cretaceous substrata of sand and clay) and Massa Marittima in Maremma (loamy- texture soil evolving towards red earth). The grapes are meticulously selected before being vinified in stainless steel. Campaccio ages in French oak for about twelve months and in bottle for at least twelve months. Complex, elegant, with full body and smooth tannins.
