Denominazione di Origine Controllata
Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
A beautiful pure Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas and flavors of blackcurrant and blackberry. Full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Cocoa and licorice with a finish of red fruit jam. Winter 2018 was harsh with several days of sub-zero temperatures, something that hadn't happened for several years. everything was characterized by frequent rains, which lasted even in the spring period, which restored the natural reserves of the territory, partly in February and the drought of 2017. The budding therefore took place late, but the weather conditions were very good from April to then they preferred growth, also bringing a slightly earlier flowering. The classic summer heat that never fails in Bolgheri manifested itself throughout the month of July and in the first half of August, until some rain lowered the temperature, cooling the plants. The good weather that lasted until September ensured a balanced conclusion of the harvest. The grapes of this Campo alla Giostra 2018 were harvested at full ripeness at the end of September to maximize the fruity potential of the grapes. The grapes, selected in the vineyard, were then taken to the cellar to be vinified. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with the cap emerging with daily pumping over, then continues with the submerged cap in order to favor the extraction of color and aromas, prolonging the maceration for about ten days. Malolactic fermentation occurs immediately after alcoholic fermentation. Aging is 18 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one year) and 6 months in bottle. This Campo alla Giostra Jeroboam 2018 is sold with its original wooden box, making this bottle perfect as an important gift. Perfect to open on occasions where there are at least 10 people at the table.
