Available for:
Ruby red wine, tending to a very lively garnet. It has an intense and persistent, ample and ethereal scent. Small ripe red fruits are highlighted together with spicy notes. On the palate the tannins are balanced and soft with an excellent aromatic persistence. 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

A certified organic wine, the Camigliano 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is medium dark in appearance with round and ripe aromas of cherry confit, blackberry tart, black rose and balsam herb. The wine is textured and rich; however, the alcohol is too high at 15%. That power takes away from the long-term potential of delicate Sangiovese and places the grape into a near or medium-term drinking window instead. The wine aged in large oak casks for 24 months, resulting in a generous production of 190,000 bottles.

There's an almost-candied quality to the bouquet of the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino, as sweet rose and medicinal cherry give way to nuances of shaved cedar and pine. This is a mid-weight and gracious Sangiovese, with bright acidity that adds an almost-juicy character within. Hints of strawberry and minty herbs resonate, as this finishes only lightly structured, yet with admirable length. While I wouldn't suggest long-term cellaring, expect the 2018 to show beautifully after only a few years' time.

The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino is forward with medicinal herbs of menthol, pine, and dried cherry. Ripe and medium-bodied on the palate, with a silky texture and fine tannins, it is noted with wild strawberry, herbes de Provence, and dusty earth. Its savory style leaves a mouthwatering need to be at the table alongside salumi and pecorino. Drink 2023-2028.
