James Suckling 91
"Dried red berries, earth, roasted herbs and cedar. Medium body, medium-chewy tannins and medium finish. Drink now."~JS
Wine Spectator 92
"A ripe style, verging on overripe, boasting plum and blackberry flavors, with iron, leather and wild herb notes. Broad and powerful, revealing a dense layer of tannins on the long, savory finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2028. 3,333 cases made. 580 cases imported."~BS
"This is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, produced in the clayish, calcareous soil of the winery, thus providing a wine rich in fruity aromas and a smooth elegant structure. The name Poderuccio refers to an old small farm located inside the estate."
"Deep red color with ruby highlights. On the nose it shows very pleasant fruity notes of cherry and black berries, with a fresh balsamic sensation. A wine with nice structure, a good balance between smoothness and freshness. A nice minerality, well integrated tannins and a long finish. A very versatile wine for everyday consumption, ideal for informal occasions at home or at the wine bar. Perfect with many typical Tuscan courses: bruschetta, crostini with liver, pasta with meat sauce and grilled vegetables."~Winery Notes
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.
