Stella di Campalto 2012 (DOC Rosso di Montalcino): the best mix of green hills, sprawling vineyards and exciting Sangiovese

Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C. is one of the denominations from Monatalcino in south Toscany (Italy). Here the undisputed king is Mr. Sangiovese (one of his clones is present in the French Corsica with the name of Niellucio). Sangiovese is an Italian autochthonous variety characterized by its good acidity and a medium-high body and tannins. This tanicidad is the one that the vineditors take advantage of to realize long ages in wood like the one that proposes to us with this cuvée elaborated for le Podere San Giuseppe de Stella Viola di Campalto.

Visually a medium depth red color with logical evolutionated borders (19 month in barrel and 21 month in bottle). Very thick and colored legs hiding structure. An intense nose, mainly ripe black fruits but there is also a complexity. It can found pin tree, resin and incense aromes. Attack powerful, fruity and sweet. Developing with good amplitude, spicy and with ripe black fruits and empyreumatic sensations. Controlled freshness. At the end it find a polished tannin for all all his time in bottled.

An ecological and biodynamic Sangiovese from the 13'5 Ha of which 5'5 for DOCG Brunello di Montalcino. That work, that respect for the nature and prestige of DOCG have a value: $ 50'95 = 45 euros. You can continue to keep this reference for 5 more years to see that evolution yet. At the service time, make a carafage one hour before the banquet (14º C recommended). As a match I would propose a Veal medallions with melted Valdostana cheese and white Alba Truffle. Without abandoning the meat another option is a Rack of lamb, foie gras, persimmon, hazelnuts and Ben-Ryè straw wine sauce.
