"Attractive darkness and a smooth texture characterize this food-friendly Brunello. It’s bright and polished on the close."

"More delicate style of Brunello, with chocolate and plum character, full body and a silky, delicious finish. Drink now."~J.S.

Wine Spectator 90
"A lean, tight style, with the structure dominant now. Licorice, cherry and tea flavors are embedded deeply, and this stays vibrant and long on the tightly wound finish. Best from 2013 through 2024. 11,666 ... read more

Wine Advocate 89
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a relatively easygoing, light-weight wine best suited to near-term enjoyment. Dark cherries, tobacco, licorice and new leather are among the nuances that are found in this feminine, understated Brunello. Firm yet nicely integrated tannins accompany the fruit through to the finish. Camigliano’s Brunello is a perfect example of the dilemma that faces Montalcino. This is a perfectly delicious wine, but in a great vintage, Brunello should aspire to a higher level. The estate gave the Brunello 2 years in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."~A.G.

Camigliano

View all from Camigliano
CamiglianoCamigliano is one of the most historic estates in Montalcino. Acquired in 1957 by entrepreneur Walter Ghezzi, Camigliano was converted over time to the production of high quality wines, in particular of Brunello di Montalcino. The 1,300 acre estate is planted with over 220 acres of vineyards, 200 of which are Sangiovese vineyards. His son Gualtiero put a lot of effort into the modernizing the company. Through the construction of a new subterranean cellar and the demolition of the previous building, Camigliano restored streets and panoramic views, and regained an astonishing landscape of the high Maremma for the medieval town of 32 residents. The new cellar is fully equipped with modern technology. Its exposure together with its ventilating system ensures a consistent, cool temperature and ideal humidity. Wine is kept in tubs with refrigerating bands with a total capacity of 4,000 hectoliters. There are also Slavonian oak barrels with a capacities of up to 150 hectoliters that give the right amount of oak influence while retaining the distinct character of this Montalcino microclimate.
Camigliano's annual production of 350,000 bottles is predominantly Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino. Camigliano also makes a limited production of Gualto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva and Campo ai Mori Sant'Antimo.
