Tasting Notes:

This is marked by new oak, with vanilla, toast and smoke flavors accenting the core of plum. The terroir is obscured for now, despite the lingering fruit, acidity and well-integrated tannins. Best from 2018 through 2030. 500 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Depicting Capri's Grotta Azzurra on the label, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is an oak-driven expression with elaborate tones of cinnamon, vanilla and roasted coffee bean that wrap thickly around fruity tones of blackberry and blackcurrant. The wine is soft and yielding with a rich embroidery of soft tannins and pulpy fruit extraction. There is that characteristic touch of bright acidity you get with Sangiovese. This pretty Brunello delivers all the qualities needed for medium and long-term drinking. It does need another two or three years of bottle aging however to fully flesh out.

Tasting Notes:

The purity of fruit and saline undertones with hints of gravel and stones are both impressive on the nose. This turns to violets and roses. It's full body with ultra-fine tannins and a cool, sleek texture and style. It builds on the palate. So much here. Mind-bending. Better in 2018 but already exquisite.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The finest things in life are often hidden away, in fact the Castello Romitorio winery takes its name from the massive twelfth-century fortress that sits atop a hill surrounded by thick oak forest in Northwestern Montalcino. Its name suggests that the edifice served multiple uses throughout its history probably as fortress as well as Monastery, making it a location that is remote in time and space. Abandoned in the 1950’s its rebirth as a winery occurred in 1984 when Artist Sandro Chia acquired the estate from his friend Baron Giorgio Franchetti. The restoration of ‘Castello Romitorio’ began immediately, followed by the transformation of its overgrown lands into vineyards, and the construction of a cellar on the Castle’s ground floor. Twenty years later in the year 2006, the winery broke ground on a new state-of-the art underground cellar completed in 2007.
