Castello di Camigliano Rosso di Montalcino 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet and floral on the nose, with a blend of sweet and smoky newer wood and austere old wood tones. Fairly ripe on entry, this is smooth and polished with nice poise, lending finesse to the late arriving tart red fruits, mineral and herb flavors. Decidedly zesty and red fruited, this pulls of the neat trick of being modern and yet typical. 90pts

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

Quite simple, but clear and precise, let's say typical in one word.. "This is a wine for every day, particularly for relaxing in the evening at home, after a day's work (Monday through Thursday)."

Tasting Notes Color: Ruby red color Bouquet: Aromas of ripe fruits Flavor: Soft and well balanced, good-bodied Pairings: Perfect with dressed pork products, mature cheeses and fairly strong flavored main courses - Winery Vineyard Location: Camigliano, Montalcino Orientation: South Elevation: 900 ft Trellising: Spurred cordon Soil: Sandy, marl clay with fossils Varietals: 100% Sangiovese Grosso Vinification: Light pressing fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperature, maceration on the skins for 8-10 days Aging Process: Six months in wood casks then 3-4 months in bottle Previously appreciated and widely known under various denominations, the Rosso di Montalcino acquired a precise identity and official recognition with the issuance of the Denominazione di Origine Controllata in 1983. The community can now boast of having three denominations of origin: Brunello, which requires extended aging; Rosso di Montalcino, a younger wine that combines a special vivacity and freshness with a superb structure, and the Moscadello di Montalcino.

The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino opens to luscious ripe fruit and big oak notes with campfire ash and exotic spice. The wine is dark and immediately drinkable with soft, chewy cherry flavors on the finish. Its a velvety and plump wine, albeit somewhat one dimensional. Drink: 2014-2017.

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.

88 Points - Wine Enthusiast"Elegant but austere, this bright Rosso delivers lively aromas of cherry cola, dried blueberries, spice and moist pipe tobacco. Floral and mineral tones appear in the mouth and the wine ends with a sweet but polished feel." - October 2010
