Campo Al Mare Bolgheri 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Campo Al Mare|
Intense small red berry fruit with hints of violet and balsamic. Great acidity and a ve lvet sensation. Soft tannins with a long and persistent finish. Pairs well with beef steaks, roasts and stews as well as rich poultry.
Tends toward the herbal side, with thyme and bell pepper flavors, but also delivers black cherry and blackberry notes. The tannins are firm, yet this is vibrant overall and lingers nicely. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2020 through 2029. 5,000 cases made.
Made with 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, this has aromas of ripe black plum, vanilla and a touch of caramel. The dense palate offers black-currant jam, sweet exotic spice and a hint of licorice alongside round tannins.
