Castiglion Del Bosco has solidified their position as one of the most prominent estates in Montalcino, and were one of the founding members of the 'Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino'. In the vineyards they practice organic farming and harvest by hand, whilst the cellar is completely gravity fed and the wines are fermented with local yeasts. The Brunellos have a Burgundian flair while still being deeply rooted in the traditions of the area.

Their Brunellos are aged for a minimum of 24 months in oak, followed by 24 months in bottle. The sought after location in Campo Del Drago, perched at the top one of the tallest hills in Montalcino, gives the grapes a favourable sea breeze resulting in wines that are sensual and delicate, with floral notes and sleek minerality.

What the critics say:

97/100James Suckling

"Berry aromas with fresh herbs, such as lemon grass and basil, from the mostly whole-berry fermentation. Lots of fresh flowers, too. Medium body with a solid core of fruit and very fine tannins that are polished and beautifully curated. Lovely presence and harmony. So drinkable now, but even better in 2027."

95/100Eric Guido, Vinous

"Dark and savory in the glass, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Campo del Drago lifts up with a bouquet of grilled herbs, exotic spices, ashen stones and dried wild berries. It's soft and enveloping, yet there's an energy within. Zesty acidity motivates its tart red fruits, all underscored by a salty core of minerality. This finishes long and staining with a coating of grippy tannins, yet is still remarkably fresh. Rosy inner florals linger. The textures here are stunning, as is the 2019's spry personality. This was fermented using 100% whole clusters."
