ntriguing and of good complexity, it offers hints of wet geraniums, hot asphalt, juniper berries, licorice stick and black olives. Full body, fused and well-ripened fine-grained tannins and a harmonious and balanced finish that closes with an interesting volume. Drink now or get old.

Offering ripeness and texture, the Camigliano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gualto is a fun and accessible wine. The bouquet is very expressive, even at this young stage. I got a charge out of those shifting aromas of dark fruit, ripe cherry, rosemary essence and a touch of eucalyptus oil that lift from the bouquet. Those balsam herb aromas are well defined, and they always appear with the prettiest intensity in the warmer vintages like 2015. Riserva Gualto shows good structure and enough acidity to keep those fruit flavors fresh and bright. Only 4,000 bottles were made.Read less
A succulent, juicy red with plum, berry and some meat and spice undertones. Medium body, medium tannins and a lightly bitter finish. Drink now.

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
