Castello di Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Castello di Camigliano|
The Camigliano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino sees fruit from a 50-hectare vineyard planted 300 to 350 meters above sea level. The soils show lots of variation with clay, sand, rock and marine fossils. The wine's bouquet reveals classic Brunello characteristics of wild berry, forest floor, pressed rose petal, crushed stone and spice. You also get those typical balsam and herbal tones that are so specific to Montalcino. In fact, I argue that they come across with even more intensity in a beautifully balanced and sunny vintage such as 2015. This wine ages in 60-hectoliter botti for 24 months, making for a firm yet surprisingly streamlined mouthfeel.
A red that shows the ripeness and richness of the vintage, with plum, berry and lightly dried fruit. Some cedar and vanilla, too. Full-bodied with polished tannins. A juicy and rich wine. Drink or hold.
