Medium-bodied with a fine — yet intense — structure, this Tuscan red captivates with aromas of blue fruits, sliced mushroom and oak. Expect a full fruit-driven palate framed by slight chocolate and smoky pepper notes. Integrated tannins provide for a long-lasting finish where each sip commits to the next. So, keep sipping.
Tenuta Campo di Sasso was started in 2001 by brothers Ludovico and Marchese Piero Antinori as an elite wine estate. But the idea for this endeavor dates back to 1994 when Marchese Piero was looking for additional land to expand the vineyard he was tending to at the time. When he came across the land that is today Tenuta Campo di Sasso, he knew it had the potential to be something unto itself.
Soil Type: Clay Vine Training: Vines are trained using the spurred cordon system at a density of 6,500 vines per hectare. The grapes were carefully selected on our vibrating belt at the winery. Destemming and soft pressing. Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel at about 28°C for a period of between 14 and 21 days. Aging: 40% was aged in used French oak barriques for at least 4 months, the rest stayed in stainless steel.
