Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'With sweet dark berries and spices, and some jamminess, this is also showing some signs of development. The intensity of flavours are well balanced by high acidity and tannins.' Lucie Hammerschmiedova, Portland Restaurant. 'Vanilla, Virginia tobacco, sweet plum and sour cherries macerated in brandy - this is full-bodied and concentrated.' Matthieu Longuère MS, team leader.
Producer Profile Campaperi
Campaperi, which takes its name from a Tuscan mispronunciation of “field of pear trees,” was established at the end of the 19th century in Tavernelle, just a few kilometres from Montalcino. Initially, the farm house belonged to the count of Argiano and was farmed as a tenant property by the Ciacci family until 1952, when they were able to purchase the land. The first vines were planted in the late 1960s, and at around the same time Dino Ciacci co-founded the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. In the 1990s, two new vineyards were added to the estate and the operations were handed down to Fabiano, the 4th generation Ciacci. He and his wife Valentina, a trained oenologist, have been managing the 7 hectare property together for over 15 years.
