Descrizione vino

From the pure vinification of Sangiovese grapes, the red wine “Campo ai Sassi” Rosso di Montalcino DOC comes from the Castelgiocondo Estate of the Frescobaldi company, from Tuscany. This wine, especially in the most excellent versions, is considered the younger brother of Brunello but in a more youthful and disengaged version. In fact, it is produced from the same grape variety, Sangiovese, coming from vineyards located on very deep soils which therefore give fragrant and elegant wines, but less tannic than Brunello. For its vinification a maceration time of 16 days is requested, followed by the malolactic fermentation which is carried out immediately after the alcoholic one. The refinement is carried out in part in Slavonian oak barrels, of 80 hl and 100 hl. The overall aging time is 12 months, 4 of which in the bottle.

 

Characteristics of this Rosso di Montalcino DOC CAMPO AI SASSI

In appearance this wine has a bright ruby red color, with slight purple hues. The scent is broad and shows a complex, variegated bouquet on the nose, in which aromas of small red fruits and floral notes prevail. The taste is full and full-bodied, balanced. Very long finish, with delicate fruity hints in the aftertaste.
