From the Winemaker
A rich, deep ruby precedes pronounced and quite distinctive aromas of ripe red berry fruit enriched with notes of tobacco leaf, tanned leather, rosemary, and blackberry preserves. It is rounded and smooth on the palate, and concludes with suggestions of liqueured cherries.
94 Points - James Suckling
"Impressive depth of fruit on the nose, with dark berries, flowers and blueberries. Full-bodied, with a core of fruit that is impressive and sensual. Silky tannins. Long, long finish. Try it in 2016. This is clearly better than the 2006. "
92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is a huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, licorice, new leather and spices. This is an especially big, voluminous style built on extroverted fruit and sheer richness, but it all works. The weight of the vintage comes through in the wine-s glycerin. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. "
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Inky-dark and superconcentrated up to the rim of the wine. Black aromas of coal, licorice, crushed peppercorn, river stone and dark fruit. This is one of those wines that is so big and bold, it's hard to imagine which foods would pair best."
The 2007 San Felice Campogiovanni Brenello de Montalcino tantalizes the senses with a complex depth of flavors and aromas. If this wine were a woman, you'd be more than proud to bring her home to meet your mother. Elegance of this nature is normally reserved for nobility.
