Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino Campo del Drago 2007

Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino Campo del Drago 750ml 2007        
Sku: 1820005*

It is the most elegant and complex expression of the Sangiovese grape. It comes from grapes from the area of Capanna characterized by an excellent exposure and great features of the soil and of the climate. This wine has great power and personality, a perfect combination between tradition and innovation.

Tasting notes
A wine of great personality, intense ruby red color, the nose is broad and persistent, with particular notes of red berries well blended with delicate spicy notes from the wood. Its taste is complex, very rich, warm and pleasantly enveloping.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Campo del Drago is quite a bit brighter and fresher than the straight bottling. Freshly cut flowers, dark berries, mint and licorice all take shape beautifully in the glass. Firm yet well-integrated tannins provide the backbone and give the wine much of its energy. This is a very strong showing from Castiglion del Bosco. The Campo del Drago spent 28 months in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

A full, rich, sumptuous red, featuring cedar, incense, cherry, tobacco and earth flavors. Fresh and lively, displaying warmth and hints of wild Mediterranean scrub. The lingering aftertaste echoes the wild herb and tobacco notes. Best from 2016 through 2027.óB.S.

Food pairing
excellent with red meats and game
