A bold Rosso from the area of Castelnuovo dellAbate
Rich and ripe on the nose, then more focused and linear in the mouth, with juicy and lively blackberries and spice flavours. Ripe and round tannins with a slightly candied finish. A classic and fruity wine with a fresh taste and a nice complexity.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Ciampoleto was described as a Hill in the environs of Siena in the 14th century, which was distinguished by its mild climate and very good position.
Now restored to its former glory, this estate is located in Castelnuovo dell’Abbate, in a beautiful setting of the territory of Montalcino. Guido Folonari’s philosophy is based on excellence, on product quality, on the constant search for self-improvement, and on producing wines that really show off their terroir. Montalcino is royalty when it comes to fine Tuscan red. New owners have invested heavily in the vineyard and winery, and it shows in their wines.
