Wine Advocate

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.

Wine Enthusiast

The nose offers cherries, vanilla and toasted coconut over aromas of leather, flint and currants. On the palate, blackberries and dried cranberries emphasize more cherries, while dusty tannins swim in a thick undertow of chocolate and sambuca. Vibrant acidity sets up a long, warm finish.

James Suckling

A ripe and full-bodied Brunello with intense notes of cassis, stewed plums and kalamata olives. Some grilled herbs, too. Broad and creamy tannins with plenty of rich fruit. A little one-dimensional but concentrated and flavorful.

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. Best after 2023.
