Camigliano Rosso di Montalcino 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 is proving to be a show-stopping vintage from Montalcino. Wine Spectator's initial overall vintage review for the region has been: "Complex and powerful wines that impress with ripe yet fresh fruit and firm yet silky tannins...93-96 Points" www.winespectator.com __________________________________________________________________________ Castello di Camigliano Brunello 2004 was rated 92WS! The 2006 supposed to be similar to the 1997! James Suckling My Blog: First Impressions of 2006 Brunello January 6th, 2011 (IL BORRO, ITALY, JAN. 6, 2011) "I am finishing my blind tasting of 2006 Brunello di Montalcino today at home in Tuscany, and I am very excited about the vintage. The wines are subtle, yet rich, structured, and powerful. This vintage is the new benchmark for the region — a modern 1997."

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
