Description

2015 Vintage is available by the bottle at the LCBO in the Vintages section, or by the case through Stem Wine Group - call the office for more info. 416-548-8824.  This vintage has been awarded the following accolades:  97pts Robert Parker, 93pts Wine Spectator, 94pts Anthony Galloni, 94pts James Suckling.  2015 and 2016 Camarcanda vintages clearly show the great potential that our land in Bolgheri has got, these vintages are the best expressions of Camarcanda label so far. Silky texture and a pleasant hint of sweetness are the features of the 2016 vintage showing drinkability and juiciness. Abundant and frequent rainfalls, thus creating the ideal water supply for the entire growing season, marked both 2016 winter and spring. The summer turned out to be particularly warm and dry, but strong diurnal temperature exchanges during the ripening period with picks of 12-15 °C have been really helpful. The vines stood very well the dry season, thanks to a rainy spring and more importantly to the accurate soil management and mulching. Moreover, few rainfalls in September (250 mm of rain from August 1st to October1st) allowed to enhance the elegance of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Due to the dry weather, the presence of diseases in the vineyard was minimal and we could harvest extremely healthy grapes. Overall, 2016 vintage was “generous” and well balanced. A long and steady spontaneous fermentation provided great structure, deep colour, fruity and flowery aromas and flavours.

Aroma

Just as in the previous vintage the proportion of Cab Sauvignon is definitely relevant in 2016 blend, due to its aptitude to express itself by amazing characteristics in warmer vintages. 2016 Camarcanda shows red ripe fruits on the nose, with hints of bergamot and strawberry (typical notes from Cabernet Franc). The bouquet is embracing and persistent as well.

Taste

It has a juicy and complex palate with aromas of Mediterranean bushes and berries. The high flavor concentration is well balanced with an engaging acidity. This wine shows a long aftertaste and firm but refined tannins. Interesting is its ongoing evolution in the glass.

Vinification

The two varieties ferment and macerate separately for around 15 days.

Aging

After 12 months of ageing in oak and further 6 months in concrete vessels, they are blended and aged for several months in the bottle before being released.
