Castello di Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Castello di Camigliano|
Great wine with intense aromas and balanced tannins that can express all the characteristics of the "terroir" in quality and typicality in the selection of clones and the choice of the sunniest terrain with the best location. A classy wine that promises an interesting evolution that will extend over time. Best served at the optimal temperature of 18°C and paired with game, beef, and aged cheeses, but it can also be served alone as a meditation wine.
Wine Advocate 93 points “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 porcino mushroom, and a touch of burnt rubber or summer asphalt"... 11/2020 Monica Larner.
Luca Gardini, Gardini 96 points "A Brunello of great personality, where the nose plays on the tones of small red fruits of undergrowth, with floral touches of carnation and officinal hints of thyme. Closing on dried spices, cinnamon above all. Salty mouth, iodized tannins. On the finish, scents of undergrowth are returning."
International Wine Review
Ripe yet it dispenses an essential amount of energy with notes of red plums, strawberries, wild myrtle, rosemary, and broken sage. Medium-full bodied, juicy and bright right out of the gate on the palate showing character and tension. The well-polished tannins make up together the vibrant acidity the main backbone that will support the wine over time. Better from 2022.
Black currant, raspberry and boysenberry flavors are shaded by woodsy, wild herb, menthol and graphite notes in this distinctive red. Expressive, if not the harmony of its peers, shows some fierce tannins flexing their muscles on the chewy, astringent finish.
