Notes from the Winemaker:
A wealth of fruit yet remains fresh and vivid with blueberry and black cherry character. Some bark and dried earth. Full body, integrated tannins and a flavorful finish.

CLIMATE : The vintage developed clear, net and fragrant scents, a strong acidic structure which guarantees long ageing, and an intense and bright colour. After a rainy spring, the autumn was very hot during the day and cool at night, an excursion that made the grapes particularly rich in acidity, color and perfumes. The harvest was perfect, one of the most beautiful in recent years. In May and June the weather was cool, with good rainfall, while in summer the heat was balanced, not excessive

HARVEST TIME: : first and second week of October
GRAPE: 100% sangiovese grosso
VINIFICATION: 5000 plants per hectare, cordon-trained and spur-pruned; fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature with racking and delestage, maceration 21-25 days;
AGEING: 24 months in wood, French and Slavonian oak barrels from 30 to 60 hl
PRODUCTION: 170.000 bottles

: : the elegance and harmonic body of the wine permit its combination with many complex and complicated dishes such as red meat, feathered and furry game also accompanied by mushrooms or truffles.
Brunello, in addition, is excellent with cheeses: aged tomes, parmesan, Tuscan pecorino. It also makes an excellent combination with meat dishes of international cuisine or with complicated sauces. Because of its characteristics, Brunello is also a pleasant meditation wine

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - International Wine Review:
“Ripe yet it dispenses an essential amount of energy with notes of red plums, strawberries, wild myrtle, rosemary and broken sage. Medium-full bodied, juicy and bright right out of the gate on the palate showing character and tension. The well-polished tannins make up together to the vibrant acidity the main backbone that will support the wine over time. Better from 2022.”

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Camigliano 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers a more robust bouquet compared to its peers, with its dark and saturated fruit. One thing Camigliano has going for it is that it always delivers the characteristics of its environment. In this case, the vines are located in a warm, sun-drenched corner of Tuscany, and the warm ripeness of the fruit is a testament of place. You also get aromas of scorched earth, grilled porcino mushroom and a touch of burnt rubber or summer asphalt. This is an ample 150,000-bottle production." - Monica Larner (Nov 30, 2020)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Licorice, eucalyptus, moist underbrush and crushed mint aromas take center stage along with whiffs of toasted walnut. The licorice note follows through to the solid palate along with dried cherry, roasted mushroom and coffee bean before finishing on a saline note." - Kerin O'Keefe

89 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2016 Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino leads off with a slightly herbal and stemmy character, which over time blends with notes of woodland berries and moist soil tones. It’s soft and fleshy with intensely sweet medicinal cherry and spice contrasted by zippy acids and a hint of sour citrus. This finishes gently tannic and leaning more toward the dark fruit spectrum, where blackberry mixes with notes of tobacco. There is a rusticity here that’s not for everyone. In the end, it’s a Brunello to enjoy sooner rather than later." - Eric Guide (Tasting Date: Nov 2020)
