“Lots of dried fruit and hints of coffee here. Full-bodied, dense and rich with ripe and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. A typical, ripe 2011. Drink now.”

“Lively bright red. Aromas of spicy red berries, mint and aromatic herbs on the nose. Then densely focused, with flavors of red cherry, smoke and cocoa. Very savory, this nicely concentrated midweight boasts good density and impressive youthful energy on the finish. Camigliano’s wines have improbe by leaps and bounds over the last five or six years, and speak clearly of a very specific, unique zone area of the Brunello production zone.”

“The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gualto represents a return to a more austere and streamlined style. I say this after having written my review for the 2012 special Paesaggio Inatteso expression that is so much plumper and hardier in consistency. This Riserva, however, offers fine and polished aromas of wild berry, cassis and dried raspberry. There are background notes of underbrush, licorice, tar and white chocolate. There is no abruptness or sharpness to the wine, but you will recognize some of that sassy spice and edgy freshness that comes naturally in Sangiovese.”

DESCRIPTION: Gualto is a wine that has considerable ageing potential by virtue of the outstanding quality of its raw material, which was carefully selected in the vineyard. Even after ten years, the wine’s original elegance will still be present.
The fabric and elegance of this wine, as a result of clonal selection, choice of terrain, as well as thinning out of the vines before and during the harvest, make it suitable for long ageing. It will be interesting to open a bottle after some years with the trepidation of the wait and of the emotion of discovery to experience magical sensations

GASTRONOMIC ACCOMPANIMENTS: No particular pairings are necessary even if the complexity of the bouquet and the importance of the structure make it perfect for important occasions
