"Brooding, thick and more opulent, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Gualto makes good use of its Riserva designation (which implies an extra year of aging before its commercial release). This wine sports a thicker textural composition backed by a darker and riper quality of fruit. This was a warm and dry vintage, and you taste that sweet ripeness as a result. The Camigliano winemaking team has done an excellent job of pulling out the more nuanced and delicate aromas that Sangiovese can award when treated with care and attention." -Robert Parker
"Sweet cherry, iron, leather and sanguine aromas and flavors highlight this supple, vibrant Brunello. Features a firm backbone of tannins and finishes with tobacco, underbrush and mineral notes."
"Aromas of stewed prune, overgrown underbrush and leather emerge from the glass. The ripe palate delivers Marasca cherry, clove and tobacco alongside close-grained tannins." -Kerin O'Keefe
