San Felice Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Campogiovanni is an estate run by San Felice in Chianti Classico, and its 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is a lovely, dark and savory wine to serve with a platter of fatty charcuterie and aged tomme cheese. The bouquet is elegant and linear, showing a pretty ensemble of dark fruit, cassis and dried cherry. This vintage is particularly well balanced, with soft spice and crisp acidity competing for your attention and keeping things bright and interesting. An ample 85,000 bottles were produced.
The core of cherry and plum flavors is shaded by tobacco, spice and woodsy notes in this firm, dry red. Exhibits a Mediterranean feel, with wild herb and sun-baked loam accents on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042.
Good deep, lively red. Expressive, complex nose offers blueberry, strawberry, cinnamon, sassafras, old rare leather and iron. Then similarly complex on the supple palate, but with good energy and focus for such an easygoing, broad wine. The notes of red fruit and sweet spices linger nicely on the savory finish.
