Wine Spectator 93
“This is opulent, sporting cherry, raspberry, spice and tobacco flavors. Features a coarse weave of tannins, but the elements hang together nicely, picking up graphite and earth accents on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035. 550 cases made.”
Wine Advocate 93
“This is a new entry wine from the historic Camigliano estate. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Paesaggio Inatteso offers a more robust style and more impactful aromatic intensity. The bouquet grabs you by the nose, so to speak. This seems to be a super charged version of the Brunello annata with a more luscious and enriched personality. I feel as if Paesaggio Inatteso (“unexpected scenery” in Italian) is crafted as a means of offering consumers a more approachable wine that can be consumed in the near term at their favorite restaurant. Only 6,600 bottles were produced.”
James Suckling 93
“Complex aromas of dried flowers and walnuts follow through to a medium to full body, a solid core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.”
Vinous Media 93
“Bright red with an amber rim. Delicate, perfumed nose of sweet spices, violet and sour red cherries. Fresh and lively, with smooth tannins. The fine-grained, long finish features red berry and floral reminders. Aged two-and-a-half years in large 25-hL Slavonian oak barrels (differently from Camigliano’s Brunello Gualto Riserva, which is a cuvée of different lots and is aged for three-and-a-half years in large oak barrels).”
Wine Enthusiast 90
" Forest floor, leather, pressed violet and balsamic notes meld together in the glass. The palate is firm and linear, offering dried cherry, tart cranberry, crushed herb and licorice notes, set against youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2019–2025. "
CamiglianoView all from Camigliano
Camigliano 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.
