Camigliano 2018 Brunello di Montalcino


"The nose offers cherries, vanilla and toasted coconut over aromas of leather, flint and currants. On the palate, blackberries and dried cranberries emphasize more cherries, while dusty tannins swim in a thick undertow of chocolate and sambuca. Vibrant acidity sets up a long, warm finish. " Wine Enthusiast 94 Points

"Ripe and opulent, boasting macerated cherry, plum, eucalyptus and iron flavors matched to a muscular structure. Shows beefy tannins that take over on the finish, yet this feels balanced, with a beam of cherry persisting through the conclusion. Best from 2026 through 2043. 16,000 cases made, 3,250 cases imported." Wine Spectator 92 Points

"A certified organic wine, the Camigliano 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is medium dark in appearance with round and ripe aromas of cherry confit, blackberry tart, black rose and balsam herb. The wine is textured and rich; however, the alcohol is too high at 15%. That power takes away from the long-term potential of delicate Sangiovese and places the grape into a near or medium-term drinking window instead. The wine aged in large oak casks for 24 months, resulting in a generous production of 190,000 bottles.

Camigliano occupies a unique position within the appellation. The estate's 92 hectares of vines are spread over varied microclimates and soil types, adding more variables to the final blending program. These differences also help to mitigate climate change because the Ghezzi family can prioritize one parcel over another, and there is plenty of fruit to go around, considering these more generous production numbers."
