Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
This is rich, with a dense matrix of tannins, yet also boasts cherry, floral and spice flavors. Touches of tobacco and earth round out the flavor profile as this extends on the finish. Finely balanced, this should be approachable soon. Best from 2020 through 2035. 200 cases made.
Castello Romitorio has cool vineyard sites and is one of the few estates that performs consistently in the warmest years. That's why the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is just so darn good. This estate has tweaked its winemaking style over the years to produce increasingly elegant and streamlined wines. There is finesse here, but you also get bold cherry fruit, moist earth, cured tobacco and grilled herb. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth, with good acidity on the close. Only 2,900 bottles were made.
Some very bright flowers and dried red berries, all making this an attractive fresh impression. There are good aromatic details here. A really focused palate with a vibrant core of tangy cherries with a nice acid kick in the finish. Try from 2020.
