Tasting notes: The Campo del Monte’s Sangiovese Doc shows a clear ruby red as a colour, at the nose a marked bouquet note of Marasca cherry (wild cherry) and a clean violet floral scent. On the palate it gives a strong rounded taste with a nice freshness and special recall of blackberries and wild herbs. The well balanced tannin notes, the good persistence and, according to the harvest, an excellent full body together with the typical elegance and finesse of the Tuscan Sangiovese, entitle “Bucapentoli” as the best expression of the company’s philosophy
Serving temperature: 20° C
