#36, Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2011

Owner / Winemaker Roberto Guldener began making wine at Terrabianca in the heart of Chianti Classico in 1988, realizing his dream to make wine in Chianti. Obsessed with making a contemporary terroir-driven product, he set out immediately planting new vines, and clonal selection has since been a driving force in his work. He currently has 126 acres under vine. Campaccio, a blend of Cabernet and Sangiovese, was Guldener's first wine at Terrabianca, and remains the winery's flagship offering.

Growing area: 40% Chianti Classico, 60% Maremma. Yield per vine: 1.7 kg. Density: 6,000 vines per hectare

Reviews:

"Very silky and floral, this red reminds me of Burgundy with its bilberry, violet and raspberry aromas and flavors. The grainy tannins show the other side to this wine, which needs time for the two components to balance. Ends with a long, intense, fruit-filled finish. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Rank #36, Top 100 Wines of 2011." -Rated 93, Wine Spectator
