“The Camigliano 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers a more robust bouquet compared to its peers, with its dark and saturated fruit. One thing Camigliano has going for it is that it always delivers the characteristics of its environment.

“The Camigliano 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers a more robust bouquet compared to its peers, with its dark and saturated fruit. One thing Camigliano has going for it is that it always delivers the characteristics of its environment. In this case, the vines are located in a warm, sun-drenched corner of Tuscany, and the warm ripeness of the fruit is a testament of place. You also get aromas of scorched earth, grilled porcini mushrooms and a touch of burnt rubber or summer asphalt. There is an ample 150,000- bottle production.”~ML

The Brunello from this historic estate is made from Sangiovese Grosso cultivated on 124 acres of vineyards that produce yields far below the legal limit. Camigliano ensures this elegant Brunello embodies the terroir by utilizing carefully selected clones and selecting Sangiovese from the vineyards with the best exposition. Ruby red color. On the nose it is very spicy with chilies and peppers before turning to berries and strawberries. Full body, velvety tannins and flavors, as well as lightly salty undertones characterizes the palate. Ideal with red meat and game accompanied by mushrooms and truffles.”~Winery Notes

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.
