Campitello is one of three single vineyards on the property. The vineyard is the oldest at 45 years, and is completely isolated from others by forest. Soils here are mainly clay and marl at altitudes of 420 meters above sea level and average vine age of 40 years. It ferments without added yeast after long maceration on the skins. It then ages over two years in French and Slavonian oak, followed by concrete where it naturally decants prior to bottling. The blend is 90% Sangiovese, 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino. Campitello is both a staff and client favourite. There is density and power in this wine, with its firm tannins and high acidity with bold fruit and intense aromatics of spice and herbs. Paired best with Tuscan meat-based dishes, especially game.
