Displaying the characteristics typical of the Sangiovese variety grown in this area, Campo aiSassi Rosso di Montalcino is a
wine with a youthful, almost casual quality. The deep soils on which the vines grow help to produce elegant, aromatic
wines with alight, delicate tannic texture.

Vinification and ageing
Once harvested, the Sangiovese grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at acontrolled temperature. During this
stage, breaking up the cap was vital to ensure perfect polyphenolic extraction. The wine was then aged further in the
cellar, with a period in wood barrels. It was then aged further in the bottle to complete the process and produce a quality
product for consumers to enjoy.
Campo aiSassi 2020 has a marvellously intense, radiant and clear ruby-red colour with subtle violet hues. The nose
presents lovely floral and fruity notes. Immediately apparent are hints of red and black berries, including currants,
blackberry and blueberry, accompanied by delicate hints of violet flower. Citrus notes of Bergamot and chinotto oranges
further emphasise its elegance. It is rich and substantial on the palate, providing a delightful tannic texture that is not
overpowering. The balance between the acid and alcohol is absolutely perfect. The finish is long and persistent.
