VINTAGE NOTES 2014
Cooler than previous year, with abundant rainfall in winter and spring that caused a slight delay in flowering of the vines; temperatures above average in early July have favored the recovery conditions and maturation continued gradually through, online with the average seasonal temperatures in the months of August and September; excellent quality of the grapes, rich in aromatic substances and polyphenols with ideal values.

TASTING: Intense ruby red colour. Aroma: ripe forest fruits, blackberry conserve and notes of tobacco and leather. Broad, soft and persistent on the palate, with a spirit-steeped fruit finish.

ACCLAIM: "Made in a traditional manner with three years of aging in large Slavonian oak casks, the 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is a beautifully polished and delicate wine. This vintage is also very accessible, meaning you also will be able to enjoy it in the near and medium-term. Its appearance is dark and velvety, and the bouquet opens to bold aromas of cherry and black currant. This wine also had a firmer sense of structure and texture compared to many of its peers from the vintage. This wine gives you an authentic taste of Tuscany." - 93 POINTS, THE WINE ADVOCATE
