A confirmation from Bolgheri
The other night I was looking though my wine cellar for something to pair with roast beef. I came across a Campo alla Sughera Bolgheri Superiore Arnione 2005 and immediately recalled its aromas and flavors. The question obviously arose as to whether it had maintained its promise when it came out, when it was already a most pleasing wine. A question soon resolved by bringing it to the table.
Campo alla Sughera is an estate owned by the German Knauf family, world leaders in the production of construction materials. From the beginning, at the start of the new millennium, the estate proved it had all it needed to produce quality. The estate has 16.5 hectare of vineyards, mostly with a sandy soil, and annually produces 90,000 bottles of top-quality wine. On the Bolgheri scene, this estate stands out for its reliability and stylistic consistency.
Arnione translates ‘alabaster egg’, the precious heart of quality limestone, an unmistakable reference to the main activity of the Knauf family.
