Information

35 % Merlot and 65 % Cabernet Franc from the Tatzenschrot site of the Manincor winery in South Tyrol, a south-eastern slope at around 250 metres with clay and limestone gravel. Fermentation of destemmed berries in wooden fermentation racks for four weeks, then 20 months of aging in barrique with 50 % of new racking. The percentage of grape varieties in 2016 is exactly the opposite of 2015.

Color

slightly transparent cherry red

Nose

The Castel Campan 2016 shows a stunningly charming nose of ripe sweet, sour and black cherry fruit that combines with cassis and fine wood. In addition to the cassis, the Cabernet Franc also delivers a bit of green but ripe pyrazine notes that add an additional fresh dimension to the dense wine. The fruit is framed by fine wood, a little smoke and tobacco.

Palate

On the palate, the cuvée is silky, clean and fresh, but with power, body and southern ripeness and sweetness, a fine-grained tannin that is present and structured, but accompanies the fruit with nobility. Possibly a few raps of Cabernet were also fermented. This is suggested not only by the nose, but also by a feel on the palate that delivers grip and coolness, helped by fine acidity and minerality. A great vintage of the Castel Campan.

Food recommendations by Christoph Raffelt

  • Porcini mushrooms and butter on fresh tagliatelle
  • Beef cheek braised in red wine with caramelised carrots and turnips
  • Saddle of venison with porcini mushrooms, chestnut puree and blackberry sauce
