"Ricasoli literally wrote the book on how to make Chianti Classico." - James Suckling, Wine Spectator, January 2009".
Campo Ceni Toscano is a relatively young wine whose quality and pleasantness are derived from the freshness of the fruit, a wine Ricasoli considers to be one of the best vintages in recent years. Sangiovese and a small percentage of Merlot.
A youthful Super-Tuscan that is suitable for casual as well as sophisticated cuisine. Clean, vinous, fruity with scents of cherry, black cherry and prune. Velvety palate, delicate and sweet tannins, full-bodied and rounded.
I'm enjoying this Super-Tuscan! It's perfectly suitable for early evening sipping and will be great with the Tuscan meal we're having for dinner.
