ROSSO DI MONTALCINO CAMPAPERI

   Campaperi is a Tuscan mispronounciation of “Field of pear trees”, or the field where the first specialized vineyard was fixed in the ‘60s. It’s a field with good soil and looking south and caressed by sea winds. Its colour is reddish and rich in rubble which the passing of time has slowly crumbled. There are some wild pear trees at its edges; that’s why it has been called “Campaperi”.
   The Rosso Campaperi originates from the Brunello Campaperi. When fermentation is over part of it is separated and let age for a shorter time, about 12 – 15 months, in 30 HL Slavonia wood barrels and then bottled as Red wine. This type of wine is younger and has got a superb structure together with freshness and vividness. It looks bright and vivid, the ruby colour is heterogeneous and its berry scent is deep and intense. It tastes pleasant, dry, smooth and fresh, which lingers in one’s mouth. The Rosso Campaperi has to be drunk when young but can be aged as well.
   A glass of this wine must be tasted and it matches pretty well with pasta dressed with meat sauce, risotto, pork or veal, cheese and fresh Tuscan bread and salami. It has to be served in large crystal wineglasses at a temperature  of about 18° C. after keeping the bottle open for a couple of hours to let it taste at its best.
