Castello di Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Castello di Camigliano|
This red is hallmarked by a bright beam of cherry, strawberry, floral, earth and menthol flavors, with an elegant profile giving way to dense tannins as this winds down on the finish. Fine balance. Best from 2025 through 2040. 14,000 cases made, 3,250 cases imported.
This opens with aromas of eucalyptus oil, blue flower and roasted coffee bean. The savory, full-bodied palate offers fruitcake, cherry marinated in spirits and licorice before firm, close-grained tannins sneak up toward the end and leave a grippy, drying finish. Give the tannins a few years to unfurl, then drink sooner rather than later.
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is dusty and pretty in character, mixing dried flowers and incense with crushed strawberries. Its fleshy textures wash across the palate with masses of ripe red berries and sweet spices, yet the expression remains nicely balanced throughout. This is lightly structured yet long, leaving nuances of licorice and clove to linger on. The 2017 is showing very well already, but it doesn't have much in the way of cellar potential.
