Castello di Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino Gualto Riserva 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Castello di Camigliano|
Sleek and linear in profile, this red offers intense strawberry, raspberry, rose and wild herb flavors, with flourishes of mineral and tobacco. Solidly built, this leaves a long, resonant aftertaste of fruit, mineral and spice notes. Distinctive for its bright red fruit flavors. Best from 2024 through 2045.
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.
Subtle aromas recalling camphor, scorched earth and new leather emerge from the glass. Rounded and juicy, the immediate palate offers raspberry jam, hazelnut and roasted coffee bean framed in compact, polished tannins. Best through 2025.
