Having pushed their wines to the front rank of Brunello with a set of sublime 2016s, Castello di Romitorio is surely Montalcino’s most exciting addresses.

Purchased by avant-garde Italian artist Sandro Chia for a few of his paintings back in the 80s, the estate is going from strength to strength in the hands of Sandro’s son Filippo who has kindly lined up a series of stunning wines for you to taste. Filippo also has the rare distinction of being our first ever guest when we launched Wine Therapy back in February 2020, making this Grower Tasting extra special!

Onto the wines… starting with a trio of drinking wines from their wonderful 2018s, headed by their SuperTuscan Romitòro that scored 93+ points from the Wine Advocate, we will then move onto their breathtaking Brunello 2015s, including the flagship Filo di Seta from one of Montalcino’s best single vineyard sites. We’ll draw things to a close with the staggering Brunello Riserva 2004. A proper unicorn wine, Romitorio has only released 9 Riservas in their 40-year history and any opportunity to try a maturing sample is not to be missed.

We will be drinking:

Rosso di Montalcino, 2018 (50ml)
Chianti Colli Senesi, 2018 (50ml)
Romitòro, 2018 (50ml)
Brunello di Montalcino, 2015 (50ml)
Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta, 2015 (50ml)
Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, 2004 (50ml)
