Brunello Cru Campo del Drago 2019

Campo del Drago 2019 is a Brunello di Montalcino cru from the finest vineyard in the Capanna area, a hectare and a half at the highest elevation. Superbly-structured and with a distinctive personality. Campo del Drago is the most refined expression of Sangiovese produced at Castiglion del Bosco.

The 2019 vintage

The 2019 vintage was characterized by a dry winter, with below-average rainfall, which was then largely restored in the spring, in the cool and rainy month of May. Compared with previous vintages, summer was in no hurry to arrive, and when the July heat began to show, the sun was making its warmth known, but without exaggeration. The rains returned in late August, followed by a cool, breezy September that gave the grapes plenty of time for optimal ripening, with perfect healthy conditions. The Campo Del Drago plot was harvested on October 8th.

Tasting notes

“Campo del Drago 2019 is an austere wine with great personality. Spicy notes of juniper and black pepper combine with fresh notes of mint and bitter orange. The sip is deep and enveloping, supported by ripe and complex tannins. The long, lingering finish anticipates the longevity that the wine will be able to sustain in the bottle.”
