July 31, 201196 Licorice, sweet spices, toast, smoke and sanguine aromas and flavors envelop a kernel of raspberry in this intense, extroverted red, which is complex, focused and structured, with an expansive finish. There's fine potential, but needs time. Best from 2014 through 2027. 7,000 cases made.
April 1, 201192 Campogiovanni is a rich, inky expression of Sangiovese Grosso with beautiful personality and length. The mouthfeel is still young and raw but the aromas already show deep evolution and harmony. You’ll recognize tones of red cherry, root beer, mesquite and Indian spice.
May 201190 The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is one the bigger, bolder wines of the year. The fruit shows impressive depth and richness, but it is the French oak that ultimately dominates the flavor and textural profile. Dark cherries, new leather, black olives and toasted French oak follow through on the building, intense finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

July 201190 Good full medium red. Aromas of currant, marzipan, dried rose, mocha and milk chocolate. Sweet and supple, with subtle acidity giving shape to the soil-inflected flavors of dark berries, mocha, marzipan and chestnut. Fine tannins give grip to the back end and dust the front teeth. (An earlier sample had edgier acidity and seemed drier and less complex, meriting 88 points.)
