Campo di Camagi 2015
ABOUT THE VINTAGE
2015 is one of the great vintages of Tenuta di Trinoro. The hot weather came over our vineyards only during the first months: already at the beginning of August, the average temperatures fell very fast, and we had a cool, even cold, ripening period until November. Rains fell intermittently but were light, with happy drying periods. That cool, moderate weather let us go harvesting in each vineyard after the proper waiting time.
The 2015 Camagi is a rich, concentrated wine, with a tight texture. The fruit is strong and solid and will be more so in the next few years; it will then hold back in preparation for long aging.
Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate, 96 points: “This is one of three single-vineyard selections of Cabernet Franc made by Andrea Franchetti. The 2015 Campo di Camagi is a super precise and elegantly delineated wine. You really feel that sharp and etched quality that you get with this mighty French grape. Black fruit and spice find unity and fuel the great power and determination that is displayed here. This wine is just begging for more bottle age. The young tannins are far from reaching their full integration. Put this bottle at the back of your cellar for now.”
Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 94 points: “Bright, with cherry, black currant, violet and spice flavors, backed by a solid structure. The tannins are mouthcoating, yet this finds equilibrium in the end. Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2032.”
Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, 93 points: “The 2015 Campo di Camagi is the most savory of the three Cabernet Francs in this vintage. Dried herbs, smoke, worn-in leather, tobacco and cedar are all infused with Franc character. The Campo di Camagi is perhaps a bit compact next to the other wines in the range. It will appeal most to readers who find some of the other wines a bit too flamboyant. I especially like the interplay of fruit and structure. My impression is that the 2015 just needs time to be at its best and that it has more potential than it shows today.”
