Stony soil, looser and lighter than the other vineyards, an easterly exposure, and aging in large barrels make this Sagrantino the bastion of ele-gance in Cantina Tabarrini. Cool, relaxed, distinctly mineral, it combines the individual identity of the grape with a joyous but very aromatic complexity. Marketed no less than four years after harvest.
A single vineyard, DOCG classified wine made from 100% Sagrantino grapes harvested from the Campo alla Cerqua vineyard of the Tabarrini estate. This vineyard sits some 360 meters above sea level and enjoys southern exposure. The Campo alla Cerqua wine distinguishes itself from the estate’s two other Sagrantino labels through its softness and minerality. Some might categorize it as more approachable or feminine in style. Whatever the personal description might be, low density planting, heavy pruning and careful grape selection combine to make this the smallest production of Tabarrini’s Sagrantino offerings with less than 2,000 bottles per year produced!!!
