Campo Al Mare Bolgheri 2020
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Campo Al Mare|
A plummy and fruity red with currants, black olives and walnuts and some mineral undertones. It’s full-bodied, yet reserved and polished. The herbal character, such as sage and rosemary, to the currant flavors really says it’s Bolgheri. Drink after 2022 and onwards. (Jul 2020)
The Campo al Mare 2020 Bolgheri Rosso is a blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Showing encouraging improvement over the years, this ample 100,000-bottle production (and a good value) should be easy to locate, thanks to the Folonari family's wide distribution. With vineyards just over from Sassicaia and next to the popular La Magona restaurant (a local favorite for steaks), this Bolgheri has its cards in place. Sweet black fruits are layered with light spice. The transitions are smooth and simple. It starts off in stainless steel for its fermentation and then finishes off with 12 months in tonneaux.
