Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 'Campo del Drago' 2011

12 units available online.
Product description

Campo del Drago is a Brunello di Montalcino Cru from the finest vineyard in the Capanna area, a hectare and a half at the highest elevation (560 meters) and with the best exposure. The major presence of Tuscan stone Galestro makes the wine extremely complex, with well present tannins and great ageing potential. A Brunello with character and structure, ruby red, dense and "bright", with a superb acidity that supports and enhances it.

93 Points - James Suckling

Bright and fruity yet I like the rich and decadent palate of chocolate and berries. Medium to full body and silky tannins. Savory finish.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Campo del Drago is more immediate and fleshed out compared to the same wine from the previous vintage. Warm summer temperatures have contributed to the wine's openness and its generosity. It offers a succession of red cherry, sweet spice, leather, cola and balsam herb aromas. It also shows an evident dose of oak spice and toast that still needs time to integrate. Campo del Drago requires an additional two to four years of bottle aging.

90 Points - Wine Spectator

Cherry and strawberry flavors are framed by oak spice in this polished red. Bright and well-proportioned. Needs a little time to integrate.
