CAMPO AL MARE BOLGHERI DOC
Area of production: Bolgheri district, from vineyards cultivated at our Campo al Mare estate
Vines: Merlot 60%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Petit Verdot 5%
Planting density: 6.250 vines p/hectare
Production p/hectare: on average 6,5 tonnes of grapes
Yield in wine from the grapes: about 65%

Ageing: for about 12 months in 500-liters “tonneaux” made of French oak
Bottle ageing: minimum 3 months
Tasting: Its deep, dark and dense colour opens the way to explosive aromas characterized by a vibrant balsamic note. On the palate it is velvety and enveloping, with a harmonious and balanced end.
At the table: At our “Villa di Nozzole” we like to match it with the fish cream typical of Livorno, with mayonnaise and saffron
First harvest: 2003
Shelf life: up to 10 years
Interesting fact: In Bolgheri territory, where Cabernet Sauvignon is the most common variety, Campo al Mare stands out for the original use mainly of Merlot, that gives a softer and more enveloping character to the wine.
