  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    A well-constructed wine. Very earthy aromas open to ripe berry and black cherry aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with round and soft tannins and a polished, caressing aftertaste. Merlot and Sangiovese. 1,700 cases made.

    After tasting the 1997 Campoleone (one of the greatest Italian wines made over recent years), a friend of mine joked that it was a shame these people didn't fashion cars as well as they make wine. This famed 50% Merlot/50% Sangiovese blend comes from a parcel of just under 20 acres. The compelling 1999 Campoleone (20,000 bottles produced) was aged in 100% French oak and bottled without fining or filtration by oenologist Riccardo Cotarella. A dense opaque purple color is accompanied by scents of new saddle leather, blackberry and cassis fruit, licorice, roasted meats, and graphite. Full-bodied and sweet, with a fabulous texture, ripe tannin, adequate acidity, and brilliant definition, this is a tour de force in winemaking. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

    Smooth and mellow but unmistakably sangiovese-based, drinking beautifully now. Plenty of time left. Great with cheeses and food.

    Still youthful with plenty of fruit, moderate finish. A bit tart.
