Tasting Notes:

Appealing aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry, tobacco and spice are the hallmarks of this elegant, firmly structured Brunello. Balanced, with dusty tannins gracing the aftertaste, where a hint of black pepper emerges. Best from 2022 through 2040. 100 cases made, 20 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

The beautiful Castello Romitorio 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows deep and savory intensity with elegantly balanced aromatic intensity. The bouquet is redolent of dark cherry aromas with dried blackberry that segue to spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine shows medium weight with long and polished tannins that add to the length and persistency of this unique and pretty expression. Give the wine a few more years to unwind and relax in the bottle.

Tasting Notes:

The sweetly spiced red berries and cherries here are nicely augmented with cedar and cocoa-powder notes. The palate delivers a beautiful array of fine and fresh tannins, carrying long, supple and fresh fruit flavor. Drink or hold.

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.
