Castello Romitorio Romitòro
- Tuscany, Italy
Romitòro is an elegant blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot that expresses the benefits of a moderate climate such as Tuscany’s, where vines grow naturally without needing irrigation and yield an excellent quantity and quality of fruit.The resulting wine is a bold Super Tuscan that attests to the fact that French varietals can thrive in Tuscany and give exceptional quality, whilst retaining an undeniably Tuscan character. This wine is aged for approximately 12 months in oak and is unfiltered.
"The previous vintage of this wine carried the name Il Toro, but the wine has been renamed with this vintage. In archaic Italian, the name RomiTorò translates as Romitorio. The Castello Romitorio 2018 RomiTòro is made with equal parts Syrah and Petit Verdot, all aged in oak for 10 months. This edition opens to an inky dark appearance followed by a thick and succulent texture. It offers a certain firmness to the tannins and a thinner spot on the mid-palate that thickens quickly as the wine hits the palate. Dark plum, prune and blackberry emerge at the top. Lighter notes of spice, smoke and tar also appear. Pair this wine with your favorite steak dinner. Some 44,437 bottles were made. The wine was bottled in December 2019 and hits the market in February 2020. RomiTòro is one of the great value wines to emerge from Tuscany." 93+ pts, Monica Larner, WA
"Aged 10 months in old oak - very deep colour with notes of black plums, black cherries, blackberries, prunes with nuances of smoke, sage and mocha. Dense with firm tannins, but with a great freshness to lift the wine. Even after a 2-hour decant it is still a little tight, so I think it’ll be much better in a couple of years. Great value for the quality and would pair perfectly with a juicy steak." Angus, Wine Guru
