Winemaker Notes

A great wine with an intense bouquet and balanced tannins that express all the characteristics of the "terroir" in terms of its quality and type, both in the selection of clones and in the selection of the best-situated and sunniest terrain. A high-class wine that evolves in interesting ways over time. It is recommended for important events – to honor a loved one or a special guest.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
A firm, elegant and well-defined style, boasting cherry, currant, licorice, leather and spice flavors. Concentrated and long, with a robust, dense finish. Best from 2020 through 2033.
JS 92
James Suckling
A ripe red with plum and lemon-peel undertones. Very perfumed. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a polished finish. Very fine.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is an interesting wine that seems to break ties with the darker and riper style we've seen in past vintages from Camigliano. The fact that this nuanced and elegant style has been achieved in a warm vintage is as impressive as it is unlikely. You got to hand it to the hard working vineyard team that evidently found the right elements (like harvest times and yields) to reach a more profound sense of harmony. The mouthfeel is streamlined and tight. Like many of its peers, this wine is best for near and medium-term consumption. Yet, the wine remains softly balanced and soothing on the senses nonetheless.

Rating: 91+

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Leafy underbrush, truffle, new leather and dark berry aromas slowly take shape in the glass. The taut palate offers dried black cherry, clove, star anise and espresso notes, with tightly-wound, fine grained tannins that leave a firm finish.

Camigliano in the past was certainly inhabited by the Etruscans who followed the course of the Ombrone River from the coastal Maremma area. It then became quite an important hamlet in the late medieval period, an outpost for Montalcino, joining in the fight to defend republican freedom in the middle of the 16th century.

The current manor house was built inside the entry gate (called “Borgone”) of the old “castle” making the most of the ancient walls that surrounded the homestead. The symbol of Camigliano: the camel, found on a seal dating to the 13th century, can perhaps be connected to the influence of the papacy in the area, and there is speculation of connection to the movements of the Crusades that reached the Holy Land.

The winery, which was purchased by Walter Ghezzi in 1957, a courageous and enterprising businessman from Milan with a passion for Tuscany, has undergone an intense and radical improvement in recent years with arrival of son Gualtiero: the new vineyards have been brought to their full potential (today 530ha of which 93 are cultivated with vines) at an altitude of 300-350masl, the new underground cellar was built, and the vinification practices and unconditional care for the territory, in which he has invested energy and enthusiasm, have been renewed.

The vineyards, organic, have been chosen through a careful analysis of the terrain and clonal selection by agronomic experts coming from different Italian universities.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
