Terrabianca Campaccio 2003
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
The estate's 2003 Campaccio (70% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) presents an herbal, mentholated nose along with dark red cherry and toasted oak flavors. Medium in body, it offers excellent length and enough fruit to balance the slightly hard tannins that are typical in this vintage. It is somewhat unusual in that 40% of the fruit is sourced from vineyards in Chianti Classico while 60% of the fruit comes from Maremma.
Strawberry and cherry character throughout. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Juicy. Will improve, but why wait? Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
