The Wine’s Story
When dining alone in Montalcino last spring, I was blown away by the elegance of Riccardo Campinoti’s Brunello di Montalcino. Immediately then, I knew that this winery was destined to become a cornerstone in building Brix Wine. Much later, when reading AG’s tasting note for this wine, I couldn’t help smiling, as it echoes my own, basically word by word!
