The 2020 Campo al Mare Bolgheri Rosso is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, and Petit Verdot grown on the hillside vineyards of coastal Tuscany planted on clay and sand soils that were just made for Bordeaux varietals. This property was first developed by the Folonari Family beginning in 1999 and this wine is a stunning value! The family now led by Giovanni Folonari has focused on a collection of smaller, boutique estates and Campo al Mare is their amazing estate in Bolgheri. Bursting with black currant and dark cherry fruits laced with a hint of anise and semi-sweet chocolate, graphite, and roasted earth. This wine is silky yet impressively powerful with a long, silky finish.
A fragrant nose of dark berries, dried herbs, wafer, cedar and baking spices. Full body with fine tannins. Fleshy, with plenty of dark fruit on the mid-palate and a flavorful finish. Structured red. Drink from 2024 and onwards.
