A rich, decadent red with black-cherry and flower aromas, as well as citrus and crushed stone. Some wet bark, too. It’s full-bodied, yet reserved and toned with nicely crafted tannins that melt into the wine. Vivid acidity. A poised, polished red. Best after 2022.

Aromas of forest floor, eucalyptus, violet and coffee bean take shape in the glass. Full bodied and savory, the firm palate doles out mouthfuls of ripe black cherry, mature plum, licorice and baking spice alongside enveloping, fine-grained tannins—a great showing. Drink 2023–2031

Plum and black cherry aromas and flavors highlight this dense, muscular red, accented by wild herb, iron and sanguine notes. Staying vibrant and long, this is balanced, with the quality of tannins in line with the southwestern sector of Montalcino. Best from 2025 through 2047. —Bruce Sanderson

The Camigliano 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Paesaggio Inatteso is a tiny production of just 2,600 bottles, all drawn from a two-hectare site with sandy limestone, located apart from the estate's core vineyard block, which the Ghezzi family holds in special regard. Indeed, the character of this wine is quite different from the classic 2016 Brunello. I don't get those heavier aromas of asphalt or charred earth here. This wine is much softer in approach with delicate and pure fruit. Cherry, plum and dried raspberry cede to light spice and tobacco. Paesaggio Inatteso means "unexpected landscape" in Italian, and this wine does stand apart from the others in the Camigliano portfolio.

There’s an exotic spiciness about the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Paesaggio Inatteso that I’m finding quite attractive. A mix of dried flowery perfumes lifts from the glass, slowly revealing deeper notes of strawberry and sage. The textures are soothing and soft, ushering in a more sapid expression of ripe dark fruits and balsamic spice. Brisk acids maintain balance and soften the blow, as a coating of fine tannins settle in. The 2016 Paesaggio Inatteso is classically dry and structured, yet with enough primary intensity to guarantee a steady evolution in our cellars for the next five to ten years. Very nice.
