Welcome back Brian.
Can you tell us how this differs from your earlier 2010 offer included in the mix from April of 12?
Price point is much nicer!

Now that you guys are shipping to michigan again, would love to hear more about the flavor profile and the aging potential.
This wine looks interesting

Still have one or two of the 2010 from http://wine.woot.com/offers/giornata-il-campo-red-blend-6. Of course that was back in the day when there was shipping to TN [sigh]. 'Tis a good wine, would expect the same out of the 2011.

I want to say about 3 - 4 months,
Luckily for me though(knock on wood), WTSO still shipped to Michigan
I have been getting my wine from them.
Which was nice cuz they put up alot of European wines I have never tried
But I checked winewoot from time to time to see if shipping was back, and now here it is!
Hopefully WTSO can help you in these dark times

The composition is similar as both contain about 50% sangiovese. The 2011 has a new sangiovese vineyard however along with Luna Matta and Whitehawk. The profile of the wine however should be fairly consistent between the 2. Last time I tried the 2 together I would say that the oak profile is a bit less on the 2011.

Our il campo is a wine made to emulate the great table reds that exist all over Italy. The wine is juicy and fresh and works well with typical Italian American cuisine. It stands up to spicy stuff well. We consider this our pizza wine. All the components of this wine are made on a very small scale and most are leftovers from our more expensive wines. Blending is done to guide the profile to a style consistent with our vision. This is our personal house wine that we drink on a fairly regular basis, maybe even tonight.

The fruit leans toward cherry and blackberry but some complexity and intensity of tannin exist as well.

We do not make this wine specifically to age, but it should hold up fine for a few years.

Thank you for that. Luckily TN is one of the states where we sell our wine. Ask any of the better retailers in the Nashville area and they should have our wine. Many great restaurants feature us too. Check out City House for one. I know woot has killer pricing though.

Anybody know the pH?

brianterrizzi


quality posts: 18 Private Messages brianterrizzi

We are going to check the records, but I would guess around 3.5 based on the components. The acid is pretty zippy, but the #1 thing we strive for is balance.

This was one of my first Woots way back when Va was on the list. I remember it as a bright, tart forward wine with a great tannic finish. I enjoyed it more after it opened up later and the tartness calmed down. It was a very enjoyable evening sipper that lasted me over 3 evenings. I am still holding the Giornata gemellaia as a special treat for myself!!

Thanks Brian. Nashville is a couple hours drive northwest of where we are, but next time we're up there I'll check it out. And yes, hard to beat woot pricing.

Another note on this- I check pH pretty seriously at harvest as picking with acidity is one of my biggest keys. After that however pH is less of a concern. I don't acidulate my wines prior to bottling so the way I see it testing the pH doesn't matter. I use my palate to blend to what I deem to be the right balance.

I do see however why you would care about the #. If we can't find it just assume this will be more on the acidic side for Paso Robles. We are emulating our favorite Italian wines.

Glad you liked the wine. The acid actually protects the wine and allows it to remain fresh for several nights. It also helps with aging. I sure hope you like the Gemellaia.

Sorry about the VA shipping, but you should be able to find our wine in DC and VA. We don't ship tons there, but seem to be represented in some nice shops and restaurants.

Just as a side question. Do you chaptalize your must, or do you get the brix you want over there in sunny CA? I pressed both Traminette and Kay Gray's here in the Niagara region for me and some friend's, but they never reach the target brix in this area.

We tend to have the opposite problem here… and chaptalization is prohibited in CA… though I'm sure it happens from time to time.

2011 was a gift for us in a way, with a remarkably cool growing season that gave us a bit more flexibility with picking decisions etc. In hot years, we're sometimes worried about ph & sugar getting too high before flavors are as developed as we'd like them to be.

Good post - thanks.

I was excited to see this winery on here again. I have tasted previous IL CAMPO releases and have been blown away with what they are delivering for under $20.

We have actually served this and a few of Giornata's other releases to really knowledgeable, experienced "wine friends" and they always think it is a $50+ boutique wine. (And truthfully it absolutely IS $50+ artisanal boutique wine.)

Picking this up for $12-$13 a bottle with shipping is simply absurd - I am not quite sure how the WineWoot guys pulled it off. First time I wooted this - I tried the first bottle and immediately wished I had bought the 3 woot limit.

This was one of my favorite blends that we got on woot, but woot can't ship to my state anymore. Really hoping to be able to get more.

IMO this one one of those "buy the max" deals that comes up on woot.

Random woot-related side note (I posted this during our wine.woot offer in April, 2012):

dmc69 wrote:Multi-talented (barrel-washing, foot-stomping, leg-breaking) cellar-rat who may or may not be employed by above noted winery for "dirty work" here to answer the ugly questions.


… and then I totally broke my leg during harvest this year…

And I haven't the slightest idea where the whole "leg-breaking" idea came from in the beginning. Fate is clearly a big jokester.

So today I re-title myself as highly-paid executive cellar-rat who often wins lotteries and marathons and cures cancer with a new wine-based diet…

I'll check back in another 18 months or so to let you know how my wine.woot-post future-altering theory pans out.

SHILL: ....huge fan of Giornata; I've served the Il Campo, the Aglianico and the Gemellaia for discerning Italian friends (and non-Itialian friends who are Italian wine snobs) and all were impressed.

And as stated earlier, the QPR on this wine at full retail is impressive. A great daily drinker at this price that's good enough for the weekends...

I will try this wine at City House on date night with my wife and close friends, who are also frequent wooters. City House will be a fist too.

Thanks Brian!!

C'mon Woot, we need more wine selections not furniture or openers. Just get us the wine, we'll figure out how to open it and where to sit once we do.

Darn, I was considering buying this, but I got home late and perhaps had consumed a glass or two of wine, and I forgot!

Any shares in the greater NYC area?
