Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'Vanilla spice with cinnamon and cloves balanced with ripe dark fruits such as cherries and plum, and an earthy backbone that brings layers to this. A fun wine by the glass, but would also pair well with food. 'Laurent Richet Master Sommelier and team leader. 'Intense, with juicy black plums, dried violets and loads of liquorice, cloves and nutmeg spice.' Lucie Hammerschmiedova, Portland Restaurant.
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.
