“Camponibbio” is a Vineyard located in the southern part of our Vino Nobile estate, just outside the town of Chianciano Terme, Siena. This vineyard is subdivided into various plots, each with its own grape varietal, clone and rootstock that best match the varying soil types. During each harvest we select the fruit from the best performing vineyard plots, given the weather conditions of that vintage. The grape composition of each vintage, therefore, is made of varying percentages of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Vinification: Each varietal fermented separately in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. Fifteen-twenty day maceration at 25-29° C (77-
Aging: placed oak barrels of various capacity for about 12 months followed by a long bottle aging period.
Taste: bold and complex, yet balanced and elegant.
Serving Temperature: 18-20°C (64-68°F). We recommend uncorking about 1 hour prior to enjoying, or decanting.
Gastronomy: especially suited to match slow cooked meats, such as roasts and game. Excellent also with grilled red meats.
