The Wine Advocate's Monica Larner declares "Filippo Chia's Castello Romitorio is on fire. All of his wines are enjoying a well-deserved moment in the spotlight", and having pushed through to the front rank of Montalcino, Castello di Romitorio is arguably Tuscany's most exciting address. When we first brought on Castello di Romitorio we were convinced this was an estate going places and it's a real pleasure to see Filippo and the team achieve the superstar status they deserve.

Castello di Romitorio's estate Brunello is always a club favourite here. Sitting high on the hilltop and surrounded by thousands of acres of forest, Romitorio's elevated climate means the wines always have impressive freshness and the estate Brunello is no exception. No Brunello cellar is complete without at least a case of Romitorio's Brunello!

What the critics say:

95/100Eric Guido, Vinous

"Dark alluring and spicy, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino emanates from the glass with an earthy blend of crushed rocks, savory herbs, spiced blood orange and dried cherries. This soothes the palate with its soft textures and depths of wild berry fruit. Brisk acidity and mineral tones add lift but also depth. The 2019 finishes dramatically long and structured, turning youthfully inward on itself as orange and rosy inner florals resonate. The house style is on full display here, elevated by the radiant fruits of the 2019 vintage."

94/100Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dried cassis and cranberry, and there is a hint of something floral and fragile, like crushed red rose petals or potpourri. However, the wine also shows growing momentum, especially as it opens in the glass and you start to recognize dark spice, clove, bay leaf and thyme. There is a point of sweetness on the mid-palate, even some dried raspberry, rendering an overall more accessible wine. Compared to the brilliant fruit in the Filo di Seta, this village wine has drier notes with hints of daisy greens and dried currant."
