|Brand||Stella di Campalto|
Stella di Campalto's NV Choltempo Fiorello explodes from the glass with a sweet, exotic and truly seductive mix of spicy black cherry, complemented by notes of cinnamon, clove and sweet mint leaf. Soft, lifted, unexpectedly feminine textures usher in wonderfully pure red fruits, with vibrant acids and sweet minerality creating a juicy, mouthwatering expression. The finish is medium in length, understated but also very pretty and floral, with just a hint of sweet herbal tea. This kitchen-sink blend of Sangiovese (from the 2016 vintage), Tannat, Arinarnoha, Marcelan and Lagrein (various vintages) comes from a small vineyard that is more like a garden to Stella di Campalto and worth seeking out as a unique expression from this passionate producer.
