Campoleone is a red IGT from Umbria and the estate's signature wine. It is 50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot. This Merlot/Sangiovese blend has an extraordinary perfume of saddle leather, smoke, cassis, prunes, and plums. A rich full-bodied, voluptuously-textured wine, with layers of concentrated fruit and sweet tannins. A magnificent seamlessness with a huge, explosive long finish. It is a wine of great stature as well as intensity.
"The 2004 Campoleone, the estate’s signature wine, is simply gorgeous. This blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Merlot spent 12 months in French oak. It is a firmly structured wine with superb density on the palate, where layers of tobacco, dark cherries, earthiness, smoke, licorice and toasted oak all come to life. The tannins finish slightly dry and astringent, likely a result of an overly exuberant use of French oak. Still, this is a beautifully delineated, focused Campoleone."
