The 2005 Campora has acquired lovely tertiary complexity in bottle. Truffles, sweet tobacco, flowers and plums are some of the notes that are woven into a fabric of notable complexity. The Campora impresses for its delineation, balance and a round, inviting finish. Campora is a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon based red. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022.

Wine maker notes
This world renowned wine comes from the vineyard Camporaiolo at Casale in San Gimignano. It is almost entirely produced from carefully selected Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After the fermentation it passes into 225 l. French oak barriques and is aged for about 24 months; this is where the wine gains the structure and the elegance it is noted for. The wine then rests in the bottle for at least 12 more months before being introduced to the public. The Campora is a wine with great harmony and a remarkable structure and complexity.

Technical notes
(95% Cabernet Sauvignon/5% Merlot). The best fruit from the Camporaiolo vineyard is hand-picked, fermented and aged in small French oak barriques (40% new) for 20-24 months.

Food pairing
Suitable with all roast meat dishes and heavy sauces. A typical Tuscan dish would be "cinghiale in umido", a wild boar dish or "pecorino toscano piccante", sharp Tuscan pecorino cheese.
