95 Points from Wine Spectator
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. Best from 2021 through 2035.
92 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
92 Points from James Suckling
Plenty of sweet fruit here, but also has a very solid tannic base and good length. However, not the complexity of the very best. Drink or hold.
This wine is made from grapes grown in the best sandy-clay soils of the estate, close to the castle. The micro-climate of Camigliano gives the wine elegance and a personality of bouquet and taste. Gualto has an excellent ageing potential thanks to its high quality, its bouquet evolving gracefully over time. The name “Gualto” honors owner Gualtiero Ghezzi.
Deep red color with orange notes. Mature fruit nose of blackberry with notes of licorice, spices, tobacco and wet earth. Well-structured sip with layered richness, a fine acidity and marked soft tannins.
Thanks to its structure and elegance, it is perfect with the best Mediterranean specialties and with game, roast meat or mature cheese.
