Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gualto 2001

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Big, masculine nose of dark black fruit that is ripe, but firm and chiseled. Added to that is cedar, some potpourri, a bit of raisin and other dried fruits. The palate is solid as well, with firm black cherry, and more cedar, and lovely tobacco on the trailing edge. There are pleasant angles to the palate,m continuing the masculine character. The finish is long and firm with charred earth, dried black cherry skins and more tobacco. 94 Pts

The history of Camigliano dates back to a very ancient time. The Etruscans most certainly dwelled here, coming from the coast of Maremma and following the Ombrone river up-country.It then became a village of regional relevance in the High Middle Ages, and outpost of Montalcino in the XVI Century, when it stoutly defended the republican self-government and the ideal of freedom.   A characteristic land of Italian mezzadria, a word that defines the local system of sharecropping lease, Camigliano has always been devoted to the growing of grape vines and the cultivation of olive trees.   In the aftermath of World War II, the town experienced the typical outbound migration of an industrializing Country, a demographic trend that made Camigliano a distinctive example of rural district in central Italy.   The symbol of Camigliano, retrieved in a seal of the XIII Century, is possibly linked to the ancient guild of camilli, an institution formed at the times of Roman Emperor Diocleziano, when hereditary craft guilds were born. A group of them probably originated the very first settlement of the area, leaving Rome towards North. History delivered to us untouched the badge of the town and its place name. Read less
