The 2014 Campo di Camagi is the most complete wine among the three single vineyard expressions of Cabernet Franc now being highlighted by vintner Andrea Franchetti. Fruit yields from this two-hectare vineyard are lower in Campo di Camagi with six clusters per vine compared to eight to ten clusters per vine in the other plots. The site shows blue clay under the surface with gravel and small stones at the top. This soil composition makes it very difficult for the plant's root system to penetrate. As Franchetti puts it: "This wine is made from very stressed fruit." Of course, in wine speak, this is a very good thing, resulting in a wine that shows bigger density, opulence and overall concentration. This Cabernet Franc opens to a blackish color and thick aromas that raise heavily and slowly from the glass. The vines are 25-years-old. Balckberry and dried cherry segues to sassy spice and tobacco. This is a wine for the cellar. 95/100.
Winespectator.com: 95/100. Aromatic, offering floral and light herb notes, with an emphasis on cherry and currant flavors. This is dense, with firm tannins, a touch of spice and a lingering mineral element on the aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2033.
