Bolgheri is, above all, a state of mind, a way of life, the rarefied atmosphere of a world thought to no longer exist. As in a mosaic, the single pieces which compose it are of precious materials and colors, but observing them one by one there is no perception of the overall picture. Nature here remains in a pristine state; woods dominate the hillsides which, running parallel to the coast, protect it from winter’s worst cold. And, to the west, sparkles the blue of the sea, a sea which mitigates with its breezes the dog day heat of July and August. The vineyards, often wedged into the green of forest spaces or of ancient olive groves, dominates, together with the silent whistling of the wind, a landscape drawn discretely by the human hand.
The Campo alle Comete estate is located at the foot of Castagneto Carducci, the only municipality that holds the prestigious DOC Bolgheri denomination. Here is also born the “Stupore”, a wine that brings the peculiarity of Tuscan coast to full expression.
We tasted: “Stupore” Campo alle Comete 2015 Bolgheri DOC
“Stupore” is a red wine from Bolgheri in which four different varieties of international vines meet, which together make up an absolutely excellent blend.
This wine has a beautiful ruby red, deep and intense colour. On the nose it expresses fruity notes of cherry and fresh plum. The taste turns out to be soft, balanced and fresh. Excellent length and sapid the final. It is perfect with meat and especially poultry, it is excellent to accompany stuffed honey duck.
