Acquired in 1957 by entrepreneur Walter Ghezzi, Camigliano is one of the most historic estates in Montalcino. The 1,300 acre estate is planted with over 220 acres of vineyards, 200 of which are Sangiovese vineyards. Walter's son Gualtiero put a lot of effort into the modernizing the company. Today the new cellar is fully equipped with modern technology. There use both Slovenian and French oak barrels that give the right amount of oak influence while retaining the distinct character of this Montalcino micro climate.
Ruby red in color, Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino is crafted from 100% Sangiovese Grosso. After light pressing fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 82°F and then maceration on the skins for 21-25 days with frequent delestage, the wine is aged for 24 months in Slovenian and French oak barrels of 60 - 160 HL followed by another 12 months of aging in the bottle. On the nose, Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino opens with spicy notes of chili and pepper with undertones of strawberry and raspberry. The full-bodied palate offers velvety tannins with additional nuance of fresh flower, blackcurrant and earthy minerals. Subtle notes of salty undertone lingers through the long finish. Pair it with red meat, game, mushrooms or truffles. Also excellent with cheeses such as aged tomes, Parmesan, Tuscan pecorino.
“A beautiful, sexy wine with exotic aromas of freshly cut flower, cherry and strawberry. Full body with fine, silky tannins. Long, fresh finish. Drink now.” - James Suckling
"Cherry and plum flavors hold the upper hand until the long finish, where beefy tannins enter the fray. Spice, tobacco, and earth accents chime in. Best from 2018 through 2028. 12,500 cases made." - Wine Spectator
“The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino opens to soft layers of plush fruit and red cherry. The wine shows a ripe side to the vintage with bold fruit that is chewy and rich. Despite the wine's opulence, it never feels jammy or overdone. In fact, it reins in that extra sunshine with expert care and attention. In contrast to the richness of the bouquet, the medium-bodied mouthfeel is toned and exhibits less dimension overall. The appeal here is genuine and immediate. ” - Wine Advocate
