Campinuovi, Tuscany

Campinuovi, Tuscany

Campinuovi is a new Tuscan wine estate in the emerging Montecucco zone, located near the village of Cinigiano, Grosseto, on the border with Montalcino & 40km inland from the Tyrrenhian sea coast. The estate’s vines lies on the (schistous) galestro, iron-rich red soils & silt slopes of extinct volcano Monte Amiata, at 460 msl,  that in turn provides excellent drainage & constant ventilation. Once owned by the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, the lands were expropriated by the State in the 1950s & sold off to the contadini/farmers. Campinuovi was once such plot of land.

Skip forward to 2000 when Tuscans Daniele Rosellini, an enologist with prior experience working alongside Giulio Gambelli, Gianfranco Soldera & the tragic figure of Ferruccio Fenocchio of Barolo’s once brilliant Pianpolvere estate, & Nadia Riguccini, a cowgirl from Arezzo & now agronomist teacher in Siena, bought the 35ha (of which 7.15 are under vine) Campinuovi estate, replanting it in 2002 before first bottling under their own label in 2006. A new cantina was completed in 2012. Sangiovese is the key grape, along with a white Ansonica for passito. Daniele & Nadia also planted 10% Cabernet & Merlot.

The wines are sensitively made, using organic & biodynamically grown fruit, vinified in both stainless-steel & 20hl large slavonian oak botte. Stylistically they capture both the beguiling charm of the Maremma while displaying a spine you’d more normally associate with Montalcino nearby. The Rosso is more international-looking & early drinking, blending Sangiovese with Cabernet & Merlot. The Sangiovese captures the fresh fruit expression of Tuscany’s flagship grape, while the Riserva comes from a specific vineyard, ‘Vigna Campi Nuovi’, a shoulder of land rich in iron & pudding stones.
