Castello di Camigliano Rosso di Montalcino 2011

External Review by We Speak Wine:

This broad, mouthfilling red offers cherry flavors accented by herb and mineral notes. Tobacco and tar hints show on the long finish. Drink now through 2018. 900 cases imported. -BS Camigliano's 2011 Rosso di Montalcino impresses for its depth and generous, silky personality. Dark cherries, licorice, smoke and tobacco are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. The estate's Rosso is one of the richer, lusher wines of the year, but the mid-weight personality of Sangiovese from this part of the zone nevertheless comes through in spades. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017. Dark red. Perfumed aromas of red berries, minerals and faded flowers. Then big and luscious but quite suave on the palate, showinglovely lift to the typical sangiovese flavors of red cherry, violet and licorice. This has very good mid-palate fat and strikes me as deeper and more complex than past Rossos made at Camigliano.

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
