Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino displays the same characteristics as Brunello, but in a more youthful, less complicated manner. It is produced from the same grape, Sangiovese, but from vineyards with vines that have very deep roots and yield wines which are aromatic and elegant, and less tannic than the Brunello. Variety Sangiovese. Length of maturation: 12 months in barriques with 3 months in bottle.
Campo ai Sassi 2015 is a bright ruby red wine with hinted purple highlights. Its nose is complex and varied with a prevalence of small red fruits and floral notes. The wine’s body is beautifully balanced with a long finish that holds a delicately fruity aftertaste.
Serving suggestions Egg-pasta dishes such as pappardelle in hare sauce, or with boar, or with any red meat, whether steak or stews.
