Winemaker Notes

#4 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

The most prestigious of Tuscany's noble wines, a true prince among royalty: lean and finely structured, assertive and expansive--a wine whose authority, needless to say, is recognised by most other well-known reds. This is perhaps our most celebrated wine, for San Felice has shown how to achieve a Brunello that is remarkable for its fine balance, solid structure, and remarkable capacity for lengthy ageing. Anyone who loves fine wine must, at least from time to time, fall under the spell of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

Licorice, sweet spices, toast, smoke and sanguine aromas and flavors envelop a kernel of raspberry in this intense, extroverted red, which is complex, focused and structured, with an expansive finish. There’s fine potential, but needs time. Best from 2014 through 2027.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Campogiovanni is a rich, inky expression of Sangiovese Grosso with beautiful personality and length. The mouthfeel is still young and raw but the aromas already show deep evolution and harmony. You’ll recognize tones of red cherry, root beer, mesquite and Indian spice.

International Wine Cellar

Good full medium red. Aromas of currant, marzipan, dried rose, mocha and milk chocolate. Sweet and supple, with subtle acidity giving shape to the soil-inflected flavors of dark berries, mocha, marzipan and chestnut. Fine tannins give grip to the back end and dust the front teeth.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is one the bigger, bolder wines of the year. The fruit shows impressive depth and richness, but it is the French oak that ultimately dominates the flavor and textural profile. Dark cherries, new leather, black olives and toasted French oak follow through on the building, intense finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Agricola San Felice is a multi-faceted enterprise with activities spread over various locations:

Above all, of course, the tenute, or farm estates, with their prized vines and olive trees; the Vitiarium, where most of the scientific research is carried out; the winecellars, where all of the production takes place, from vinification to maturation in barriques and bottling.

Also the frantoio, or olive-oil press; the borgo, the company headquarters and retail enoteca, but, in particular, a... View More
