Winemaker Notes

This wine is made from grapes grown in the best sandy-clay soils of the estate, close to the castle. The micro-climate of Camigliano gives the wine elegance and a personality of bouquet and taste. Gualto has an excellent ageing potential thanks to its high quality, its bouquet evolving gracefully over time. The name “Gualto” honors owner Gualtiero Ghezzi.

Deep red color with orange notes. Mature fruit nose of blackberry with notes of licorice, spices, tobacco and wet earth. Well-structured sip with layered richness, a fine acidity and marked soft tannins.

Thanks to its structure and elegance, it is perfect with the best Mediterranean specialties and with game, roast meat or mature cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Sweet cherry, iron, leather and sanguine aromas and flavors highlight this supple, vibrant Brunello. Features a firm backbone of tannins and finishes with tobacco, underbrush and mineral notes. Best from 2021 through 2035.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Brooding, thick and more opulent, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gualto makes good use of its Riserva designation (which implies an extra year of aging before its commercial release). This wine sports a thicker textural composition backed by a darker and riper quality of fruit. This was a warm and dry vintage, and you taste that sweet ripeness as a result. The Camigliano winemaking team has done an excellent job of pulling out the more nuanced and delicate aromas that Sangiovese can award when treated with care and attention.
JS 92
James Suckling

Plenty of sweet fruit here, but also has a very solid tannic base and good length. However, not the complexity of the very best. Drink or hold.

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This wine opens with ripe cherry flavors and notes of roasted mushroom, licorice and tobacco. Sturdy tannins frame the flavors as the wine develops complex spice and herb notes that last.

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.
