A fruity and smooth Brunello di Montalcino red wine by San Felice

The producer

San Felice is an Italian estate in Tuscany that is constantly looking to evolve its know-how. This estate has succeeded in highlighting its terroir through its distinctive wines for decades.

The vineyard

Brunello Montalcino Campogiovanni 2016 is made from the 65-hectare Campogiovanni vineyard. Located in the south-eastern part of Montalcino, these cordon-pruned vines are grown within the Brunello di Montalcino DOC appellation. Alternating between sandy loam and clay soils, and resting on limestone marl.

The vintage

Despite the rainfall, the particularly mild conditions during the winter favoured an early flowering of about 10 days. The summer months were marked by temperatures above the seasonal average, offset by rainy spells, which avoided any risk of water stress and enabled the grapes to ripen gradually.

The vinification and ageing

After a 20-day maceration, the musts undergo malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged for 36 months in oak barrels from the Slavonian forest. After bottling, the wine is aged for a further 12 months before being released and sold.

The blend

San Felice's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is a 100% Sangiovese, the iconic Tuscan and Brunello di Montalcino DOCG appellation grape variety.

The tasting

Colour

The colour is a beautiful deep ruby red.

Nose

The nose combines fruity fragrances (ripe wild berries, blackberry jam) with notes of tobacco leaf and tanned leather.

Palate

Ample and smooth, this wine seduces due to its richness, its persistence and its intense fruity expression.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve at 18°C.

Food & Wine Pairing

This Italian red wine will perfectly complement meat (game, wild boar) or cheeses such as aged Pecorino.
