“Lots of mushrooms, dark berries, plums and fresh leather. Full-bodied with chewy and dusty tannins. Powerful richness. Drink or hold.” James SucklingRead less
The Camigliano 2014 Brunello di Montalcino pours from the bottle with a lean ruby appearance. The wine offers mild aromas of forest fruit, wild cherry, bitter almond and grilled herb. Like other wines from this challenging vintage, this expression does not show the intensity or the depth that you get in the more balanced vintages. You do get attractive freshness for easy, near and medium-term drinking. There is a stern point of tannic bitterness on the close that may never fully integrate.
