Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red color with violet reflections. The nose is very complex with hints of red fruit, balsamic notes followed by a light herbal note. On the palate elegant and engaging; surprising in length and volume. In the aftertaste again fruity and mineral notes that make this well-balanced and pleasant drinking.

    This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot opens with aromas of Mediterranean brush, black-skinned berry and tobacco. The concentrated palate offers blackberry jam, licorice and mocha alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2022–2030.

    The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore boasts more precision than the 2015, which was a hot vintage noted for being ripe and soft. This one is much more linear and focused. It is sharper and better, and came out as the winner in this group of samples from Campo alle Comete (tasted over the course of two tasting sessions six months apart). You get a lot of dark fruit intensity here with ripe and balanced flavors that span the aromatic continuum from black fruit to spice. My second tasting of the wine showed how much it has fleshed out and taken on volume over the course of those months. The blend is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Some 14,000 bottles were made. This is the first vintage made entirely by Campo alle Comete's new owners.

    A broad, ripe style, exhibiting plum, blackberry, tar, wild herb and tobacco flavors. Exuberant, with everything in the right proportions, ending with a long aftertaste of fruit, earth and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2022 through 2038.

Campo alle Comete, Italy
Campo alle Comete Campo alle Comete Winery Winery Image

Campo alle Comete estate is located at the foot of Castagneto Carducci, in province of Livorno. The property extends over 17 Ha, 14.5 of which are vineyards and 2.5 hectares are olive trees. The grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot, planted between 1993 and 2007, are all written into the Bolgheri DOC registry.

The winery practices sustainable farming, and in 2016 they started the conversion of the vineyards to organic. The type of soil is mostly loose/sandy with some clay and a part of limestone. The mild temperatures, constant winds, and significant temperature fluctuations between day and night create ideal conditions for a balanced growth of the vines and an excellent grape maturation. The result are healthy grapes, favored by a lower attack of botrytis and diseases. Their aromatic, intense scents and their ripe, fine tannins characterize the wines and create a good pleasantness even at an early age.

 The estate was acquired in February 2016 by famous Feudi di San Gregorio winery in Tuscany. The name Campo alle Comete is an antique toponym from this area, which disappeared over time. The whole representation of Campo alle Comete, with its magical name (Cometa means “guiding star” or "Comet" in Italian), wants to bring the consumer into a dream world. Nicoletta Ceccoli, an illustrator from San Marino and winner of various art awards, has designed not only its logo but also a dreamlike picture, exhibited at the winery, from which they have also taken the fairy images represented in the labels. The director of Campo alle Comete is Jeanette Servidio. Together with oenologist Stefano Di Blasi, she has created 4 high quality wines within the DOC Bolgheri and IGT Toscana appellations.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.
