Camigliano Rosso di Montalcino 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine: with paramount refinement in both aroma and taste, it succeeds in expressing the full bouquet of fruit and flowers that characterizes young Sangiovese wines. Soil characteristics: Rosso di Montalcino starts with the company's Sangiovese grapes cultivated in the sandy clay soil, with shells, marl and high limestone content.. Planting density: 3,500 plants/hectare for old vines, 5,000 plants/hectare for young vines. Cultivation method: buttressed string. Vines:100% Sangiovese. Wine making technique: gentle pressing, fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 25-26° C; peel steeped for 8-10 days. Refining technique: Six months in oak barrels, six months in bottles. Aging potential: given the sensory properties of the product, this wine expresses all its characteristics within a year after it is introduced on the market and can age in the bottle for a number of years. Conclusion: A wine that immediately expresses all the great potential of the Sangiovese grape, even after a year of aging. The wine ages over time in interesting ways, even in the bottle. This is a wine for every day, particularly for relaxing in the evening at home, after a day's work

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
