|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|

Ruby red color. On the nose it is very spicy with chilis and peppers before turning to berries and strawberries. Full body, velvety tannins and flavors, as well as lightly salty undertones characterizes the palate.
Ideal with many complex dishes such as red meat, feathered and furry game, also accompanied by mushrooms or truffles. Excellent with cheeses such as aged tomes, parmesan, Tuscan pecorino.
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.
Black currant, raspberry and boysenberry flavors are shaded by woodsy, wild herb, menthol and graphite notes in this distinctive red. Expressive, if not the harmony of its peers, shows some fierce tannins flexing their muscles on the chewy, astringent finish. Best from 2025 through 2042. 12,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
