Terrabianca Campaccio 2015
Wine AdvocateTerrabianca's 2015 Campaccio is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This vintage puts the identifying qualities of all varieties on immediate display. This is one of the nicest things to admire in this Tuscan red blend. You get the powerful aromas of black cherry and chocolate that are associated with Cabernet Sauvignon, with some notes that are green or medicinal. At the same time, you can taste that zesty and acidic freshness of the Sangiovese. Merlot adds rich softness. These grapes complement each other very well in the 2015 vintage that provided ample heat for easy and balanced ripeness. There is a hollow moment on the mid-palate, but the wine is otherwise confident in terms of its textural importance. Some 170,000 bottles were made
Wine SpectatorA flamboyant style, from the ripe cherry and plum fruit flavors verging on jammy to the layer of toasty oak detail. Hefty tannins come into play as much from the oak treatment as the grapes. Seems a bit forced, though this may appeal to some. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2021 through 2028. 8,000 cases made.
