2010 Campo al Mare Bolgheri Rosso (Previously $20)

SKU #1149090 92 points James Suckling

 Sliced plums with hints of lavender on the nose. Full body, with fine tannins and delicious finish. Love the aromas and delicacy to this wine. Hard not to drink it now.  (8/ 2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Bolgheri Campo al Mare bursts from the glass with bold, juicy blackberries, tar, smoke, licorice and leather. There is a sense of juiciness paired with expressive inner perfume that makes the 2010 quite appealing, even at this early stage. Floral notes add an attractive upper register on the finish. The 2010 is 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.  (6/ 2012)

Wine Enthusiast

 Tones of leather, tobacco and wild mushroom are followed by accents of ripe fruit and blackberry preserves. Notes of rum cake, licorice and Indian spice give complexity to this blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.  (4/ 2013)

Wine Spectator

 Aromatic and supple, exhibiting black cherry, plum, cedar and tobacco flavors. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated, offering support on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018. (Web-2013)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
