The Singular Beauty of Stella di Campalto
Stella di Campalto:
2016 Rosso di Montalcino
2015 Brunello di Montalcino

Posted by Joe Salamone

Stella di Campalto's wines are studies in elegance and grace.

The wines pull off a feat that no other wines in Montalcino quite achieve. They have an ethereal quality that couples so beautifully, if unexpectedly, with intensity and verve.

Today, we're happy to offer their 2016 Rosso di Montalcino and 2015 Brunello di Montalcino in both bottles and magnums. 

I should mention from the outset that we anticipate this offer selling out very quickly.

Stella di Campalto is a relatively young winery. She burst onto the scene with the impressive debut of her 2004 Brunello. The crystal clear, elegant style immediately garnered a cult following.

Stella di Campalto's Rosso is a really serious bottling. Each vintage a barrel of Brunello is declassified and released as Rosso di Montalcino. The Rosso can be devastatingly good. The first Stella di Campalto wine that we ever tasted was their 2005 Rosso, and we've been hooked ever since. The 2016 Rosso is stunning. It combines concentration and clarity to amazing effect. 

The 2015 Brunello Riserva is simply a beautiful wine. The aromatics are striking, offering up layers of pure, dense fruit, dried flowers, and spice. There's real depth and concentration, but the wine remains lifted and delicate.

Stella di Campalto’s wines are always hard to come by, but the quantities on offer today are especially limited. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
