Devastating Beauty From Montalcino:
2015 Stella di Campalto Rosso Montalcino Bottles & Magnums

Posted by Joe Salamone

"It is also worth mentioning that this was tasted within a flight of 2015 Brunellos, and it held its own." Eric Guido, Vinous Media

Stella di Campalto's wines are magical. They are defined by their light, ephemeral quality that couples so beautifully, if unexpectedly, with intensity and verve. Their incredible elegance and grace quickly gained the wines a cult following.

Stella di Campalto's Rosso is devastatingly good. The 2015 drives this point home. This isn't surprising. Each vintage a barrel of Brunello is declassified and released as Rosso di Montalcino. The first Stella di Campalto wine that we ever tasted was their 2005 Rosso, and we've been hooked ever since.

The 2015 Rosso is dazzling. It offers an incredible amount of clarity and poise. There's a lovely thread of minerality that carries through the wine. The aromatics really pop with floral notes, bright red fruits, and earthy notes. Overall, you get a shocking amount of lift and finesse.

Sadly, Stella di Campalto is never available in large quantities. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
