  • Score: 89 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino leads off with a slightly herbal and stemmy character, which over time blends with notes of woodland berries and moist soil tones. It’s soft and fleshy with intensely sweet medicinal cherry and spice contrasted by zippy acids and a hint of sour citrus. This finishes gently tannic and leaning more toward the dark fruit spectrum, where blackberry mixes with notes of tobacco. There is a rusticity here that’s not for everyone. In the end, it’s a Brunello to enjoy sooner rather than later. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 94 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate The Camigliano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino sees fruit from a 50-hectare vineyard planted 300 to 350 meters above sea level. The soils show lots of variation with clay, sand, rock and marine fossils. The wine's bouquet reveals classic Brunello characteristics of wild berry, forest floor, pressed rose petal, crushed stone and spice. You also get those typical balsam and herbal tones that are so specific to Montalcino. In fact, I argue that they come across with even more intensity in a beautifully balanced and sunny vintage such as 2015. This wine ages in 60-hectoliter botti for 24 months, making for a firm yet surprisingly streamlined mouthfeel. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 94 Vintage 2015 James Suckling A bright and elegant Brunello that suggests sliced oranges, tulips and rose petals. Medium-to full-bodied and finely structured, drawing on silky layers of tannins and a vibrant edge of acidity. Drink now or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2015 Wine Spectator A focused, lively red, this exhibits cherry, strawberry, earth, mineral and Mediterranean herb flavors. Dense, staying fresh as this unwinds on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2042. 12,500 cases made, 2,500 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media Moderately saturated medium red. Strawberry, honey and flint on the nose and palate. Then fairly steely in the mouth, but boasting nice concentration and an appealing sweetness. Finishes broad and smooth, but I would have liked a little more length for an even higher score.

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast After a few swirls of the glass, the nose suggests wild berry, cured tobacco leaf and a whiff of violet. The straightforward palate shows juicy sour cherry, cranberry and clove set against fine-grained tannins. Drink after 2022. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2014 James Suckling Very beautiful and perfumed with floral and fresh cherry character. Medium-bodied, silky and creamy with a lovely finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2014 Wine Spectator Overall, this red is balanced, with cherry, plum, iron and earth notes forming a ripe, sweet center to offset the solid, dusty tannins. Finishes with freshness and a lingering element of fruit. Best from 2022 through 2040. 375 cases imported. –BS Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2014 Wine Advocate 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. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2014 Wine Enthusiast Underbrush, leather, violet and wild-berry aromas slowly take shape on this. The tight, taut palate is on the lean side, offering cranberry, licorice and espresso alongside assertive close-grained tannins that grip the finish. Give the tannins a few years to unclench then drink sooner rather than later. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2014 Vinous Media Deep ruby; this strikes me as being darker than most 2014 Brunellos I tried this year. Aromas of graphite and flint also give a dark quality to the black cherry and cassis aromas and flavors. Finishes long and clean, with decent grain to the tannins, but this does not strike me as an especially successful or even typical wine from Montalcino. Camigliano’s classic Brunello has been much better than this in recent years. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2013 Wine and Spirits Notes of fresh mushroom and smoky eggplant mingle with this wine’s dark cherry and plum fruit, balancing the mouthwatering acidity and orange-peel high notes. The flavors hold together nicely, developing notes of fried sage on the brisk finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2004 James Suckling Lots of mushrooms, dark berries, plums and fresh leather. Full-bodied with chewy and dusty tannins. Powerful richness. Drink or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
