"Choltempo" is a non-vintage blend of Tannat, Lagrein, Arinarnoa, Marselan, and Sangiovese.

Like Stella's iconic Brunello, this wine is biodynamic. Fruity and fun, big dark fruit with a lot of spice, this is very different but still tastes of its place. "Choltempo" is a little bit of a secret, but it's a secret we're very happy to share. 

Since 1992, Stella di Campalto has been producing utterly classic Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino, in the rearview of legendary mentors and neighbors (Poggio di Sotto, Ciacci Piccolomini, Uccelliera, you get it). A genuine gift to the drinker, Stella tends to age her wines even longer than most old-schoolers, and as a result, they are often more ready to drink. It only takes one bottle to recognize that these are soulful wines.
