San Felice Brunello di Montalcino "Campogiovanni" 2018

Product description

Deep ruby red. Offers up aromas of well-ripened wild berries, blackberry preserves, tobacco leaf, and tanned leather. An expansive, generous palate displays a rich mouthfeel, developing into a lengthy finale marked by fruit liqueur. Pairs perfectly with a wide range of meats, particularly game and boar, and with aged pecorino cheese.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

Very Sangiovese, this red combines both fruit and savory elements -- cherry, strawberry, hibiscus, wet hay, iron and tobacco -- with a firm structure. Expressive, balanced, vibrant and long, with stiff tannins on the finish. 

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

The nose is metallic and stony, with a puff of petrol, like a road trip in winter, but also brighter notes of bergamot, black currant and black cherry. The palate embraces the bitter fruitiness of bergamot before savory notes return for a bitter finish. A balanced, polished and integrated wine.

93 Points - James Suckling

Expressive nose of olives, sour cherries, plum stones, tomato leaves, cardamom and spice box. It’s full-bodied with firm, lightly chewy tannins. Structured and well-framed, with polished spice notes to close.

From the folks at San Felice in Chianti Classico, the Campogiovanni 2018 Brunello di Montalcino definitely shows a lot of richness and concentration that translates to more fruit weight and texture. The effect is a little heavy and overdone in my opinion, and this vintage prioritizes brawn over nuanced detail. There's a lot coming at you at once, with ripe plum, blackberry and spice. These qualities set up the wine for an immediate pairing with a hearty meat dish.
