TASTING NOTES:

Cherry and floral aromas with some perfume following through to a full body. Firm, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Linear, focused and refined.
-James Suckling, 92 pts

I'm happy to see the name of the vineyard on the front label of the 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto di Campolungo. Vineyard designations are becoming an ever more important tool for vintners in this large appellation. It helps to draw attention to specific territorial characteristics. More work still needs to be done in this direction. This is a full and generous expression with dark fruit followed by a soft and layered presentation. Bright cherry and blackberry lead to spice, cured leather and grilled herb.
-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 pts

Rich and mellow, this red exudes cherry, loam, underbrush and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firms up, with assertive yet integrated tannins and lively acidity. Fine length.
-Wine Spectator, 91 pts

Truffle, toast, dried mint and plum aromas come together along with a charred note. The taut, chewy palate delivers dried black cherry, cranberry, clove and star anise set against tightly wound, close-grained tannins.
-Wine Enthusiast, 90 pts

 

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Profoundly deep ruby red. Very ripe fruit aromas are backed up by classic gladiolus florality nuanced with balsam, mint, spiciness and sweet tobacco. Superb poise in the mouth, where structure, softness, acidity, extract and savouriness come together to perfection, leading into an aroma-rich finale that thrills to warm notes of ripe fruit lifted by fresh balsam.

Outstanding structure and soft texture set in a rich aromatic array of fruit and sweet spice make this wine a wonderful accompaniment for flavoursome meat-based dishes, such as game and spicy or aromatic herbbased recipes, or with mature cheeses.
