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:

91/100Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"Here's a new surprise from Castiglion del Bosco. Made with a selection of fruit from a 20-hectare vineyard with rich clay soils, the 2020 Rosso di Montalcino Gauggiole is quite soft and silky from the start. The wine offers a delicate ensemble of wild berry, cherry, blue flower and white pepper. Pretty background tones of crushed limestone and iron ore give the wine a sense of place. In all, this is an elegant expression that underlines the true personality of young Sangiovese. I'd drink this wine over many of the heavier Brunellos out on the market today. Production is 25,000 bottles."

90/100Eric Guido, Vinous

"The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino Gauggiole is a pretty and understated expression with wild strawberries and peppery herbs forming its bouquet. It's silky with a cool-toned personality as a staining of red berries and mineral tones slowly mount. This finishes classically dry with a sour citrus twang that nicely punctuates the expression. The Gauggiole hails from a single northeastern vineyard within the Castiglion del Bosco property. It's all refined in concrete vats."
