About the Winery
Today, Camigliano produces award-winning, organic Sangiovese. But, it's history is a compelling story that mirrors the feuding states of medieval Toscana and was the site of a famous battle between the Sienese and Pisans. From the Etruscan era to WWII, the land underneath these vines is truly historic and has been meticulously maintained for growth.
The symbol of Camigliano: the camel, found on a seal dating to the 13th century, can be connected to the influence of the papacy in the area, and there is speculation of connection to the movements of the Crusades that reached the Holy Land due to the castle's location on the pilgrimage routes to Rome.
The modern history dates from 1957 when Walter Ghezzi, a successful Milanese businessman, purchased and renovated the property. Walter's son continues the legacy of maintaining its medieval past whilst advancing the practices of this historic estate.
Offers a clear expression of cherry flavors, with hints of plum and strawberry, augmented by leather, tobacco and almond hints. A dense matrix of acidity and tannins lifts all the elements, while the aftertaste lingers. Excellent harmony. Best from 2022 through 2040. 450 cases made, 150 cases imported. — BS ~ WS 93pts
