Camparo DOC Langhe Rosso


Earn up to 15 Sips.


A northern Italian red with silky fruit and great drinkability.

With 50% Dolcetto, 25% Nebbiolo and 25% Barbera all harvesting is done by hand in small boxes, helping to preserve grape quality. The three grapes are vinified separately using only the natural yeasts, and just the right portion is aged in oak before the final blending of the wine. This food-friendly wine offers a great introduction to this region. The nose is full with aromas of black cherry, cedar and cured ham followed by a full and fruity berried palate with balancing lifting acidity and well judged tannins.


Juicy red berries, Lightly charred


Dried herb and light oak, Summer berries

Camparo di Mauro Drocco all began in the summer of 1980, when Mauro decided to make wine from a few vineyards left to him by his father just east of the town of Barolo itself in Piedmont, Italy. He remembers playing in the rows as a child, and for their father the idea of poisoning the earth, which was and is our home, was inconceivable. Mauro started to build the Camparo estate slowly, not liking the conventional winemaking methods everyone around him was using. He experimented with more ecological and organic techniques, and in 2000 Camparo di Mauro Drocco was one of the first estates in the area to receive its organic certification. Their family-run estate consists of prized south and south-east facing gentle slopes, crucial for the famously slow ripening Nebbiolo. They follow the mantra that great wine always starts in the vineyard. In the cellar the wines are also made in a very traditional sense, with slow, natural fermentation lasting up to four weeks, and élevage in large neutral oak barrels, followed by extended bottle-ageing before release.

  1. Although I ordered this wine as advertised, a 2019 vintage I was lucky to be given a 2016 vintage. A very good year. Delicious, smooth with a good finish. The first taste is a bit.astringent but after the bottle’s been open a little while, not long, the smooth fruitiness is dominant.
    No idea what the 2019 tastes like.
