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 Read more »

    Wine review by Stubs66


  • I took some heat last week for my less than glowing review of Brunello di Montalcino. While those wines were attractive, if you’re suggesting to people that they spend money on wines from Montalcino this year, my money is on the Rossos. I’m here to try and present the value proposition to readers. Sure values come in shapes and sizes, may they a... Read More

  • Camigliano Rosso di Montalcino 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

  • Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gualto 2001

    Snoothrank:

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. Th...
