Monastero Campanaio 2020

Made from equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Campanaio is the result of meticulous attention starting with the selection of the plants themselves. Alessandro Cellai began by searching for superior rootstocks and clones and quickly found a passion. His painstaking efforts have resulted in a wine of considerable personality, one that fully shows the characteristics of the international favorites without disguising the unique aspects of the local terroir.

Tasting Notes

This wine is intense ruby red with enticing aromas of black currants, plums, and tobacco. This richly textured wine is well structured, with velvety tannins, and a long elegant finish. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with balsamic-glazed chicken breast, blackcurrant coulis, or hoisin-maple-glazed pork tenderloin.
